Vishtèn – Horizons (Vishtèn, 2018)
On Horizons, Canadian band Vishtèn continues to explore Acadian roots music. The trio creates tantalizing contemporary folk dance music that incorporates Canadian and Celtic traditional music elements such as its signature foot percussion and mouth music, fiddle, guitar, accordion, mandolin, flutes, piano, Irish bodhrán, and jaw harp; as well as well as modern musical instruments such as the electric guitar.
The lineup includes Emmanuelle Leblanc on octave mandolin, whistles, bodhràn, foot percussion, jaw harp, dance and vocals; Pastelle LeBlanc on accordion; and Pascal Miousse on fiddle, guitar and vocals.
