Une Histoire de Famille

Une Histoire de Famille delivers French language roots music with a pop sensibility. The songs have energy, power, and decidedly catchy melodies, often balanced with a bittersweet, melancholy tone. The dark opening cut, "Marie Caissie," captures this balance well. Taken from a traditional Acadian legend about a woman who dies in a snow storm after her husband refuses to leave a party with her, the song is highly rhythmic and up-tempo with a powerful anthemic call. Emotional and chilling, the sound cuts you to the bone. One feels the whole story even if you don't understand a word of the French language.
