Gypsy Roma Urban Balkan Beats (GRUBB)

An unprecedented humanitarian spectacle, GRUBB was undeniably one of the signature events of last summer's Festival. Twenty Serbians between the ages of 13 and 17. A melody. Slow, bewitching, with a slight Arabic flavour. The voice of a young boy from this century, yet identical to a voice one might have heard a thousand years ago. Percussion suffused with Gypsy rhythms. A dance whose origins disappear in the mists of time. Then, culture shock. The 21st century. World beat. Rap and hip-hop, anchored in and emerging from the age-old Roma tradition. Something never before seen or heard, a completely new form of hip-hop melding with traditional Roma music. A decor made of trinkets and bric-a-brac, of old and timeworn objects, a gathering place for this group of young people. An image of the Gypsy world which is disintegrating to make way for a contemporary reality that struggles to survive in our modern-day society.

Led by Serge Denoncourt, the show, created to support the cause of young Roms, was made possible thanks to the volunteer efforts of dancer and choreographer Nico Archambault, Italian master of metamorphosis Arturo Brachetti, video wizards Olivier Goulet and Gabriel Coutu-Dumont, costume designer François Barbeau and musical director Françis Collard.

Laurent Saulnier
Laurent Saulnier (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
This musical spectacle—staged by Serge Denoncourt with a cast of young Gypsies—charmed, captivated, conquered and above all, deeply moved us all during its first presentations at the Festival last year. It sets off on its first North American tour with another visit "chez nous". A mandatory experience.
