Shauit

Shauit

The singer-songwriter-performer from northeastern Quebec’s Maliotenam sings in Innu, as well as in English, French and sometimes Creole. He writes honest, politically aware songs that mixes folk, reggae and pop flavours. He is one of the few artists in Canada to ingeniously incorporate aboriginal language to reggae music. Following the 2014 release of his second EP ‘’Shauit’’, he has played in more than 60 concerts, including festivals such as ‘’Festival d’été de Québec’’, ‘’Pop Montreal’’ and the ‘’Francofolies’’, just to name a few. He is currently completing an album that will be released later on this year. Shauit is a proud ambassador of Aboriginal and Indigenous culture.

Métis de Mani-Utenam sur la côte nord au Québec, il nous offre un spectacle où les rencontres de tous genres sont à l’honneur. Le reggae chaud et franc du Sud s’amalgame à la sensibilité et la dureté du Nord, la culture autochtone et jamaïcaine enfin réunies au service de la musique. Un spectacle unique et original où la joie, l’harmonie mais surtout la dance sauront satisfaire les plus grands mélomanes autant que les amateurs de fêtes remplies de rythmes endiablés.
