HASH(0xa7960af8) out of 5 stars Fun Folk of the French-Canadian Style March 17 2010
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Warning: Track 5, Mamzelle Kennedy and Track 6, Les Métiers, are pure joy. The other fine works on this latest album of the great instrumental and vocal folk group from Quebec, Canada, Le Vent du Nord, also contribute to a grand, mature musical collection. This is the group's most varied yet well-balanced album, with mainly tradition-based ballads and dances, heroic tales, nostalgic laments, and even an arrangement recalling the music hall or oldtime bandstand. The musicians perform with such energy and cheer that the listener cannot help but share in the fun. This is a very satisfying album. I must be a fan because it is my third from these Québecois. The style of folk song typically involves a solo singer presenting a verse or phrase with immediate choral repetitions. Instruments, which include piano and diatonic accordions, hurdy gurdy, jaw harp, violin, guitar, mandolin, piano, and bouzouki and percussion, provide an ancient and traditional country sound to modern arrangements.

HASH(0xa7960d44) out of 5 stars Ecstatic, Joyful, Classic Sept. 7 2010
By Lindsay N. Bowker - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Well, I am not on the same par as other reviewers of this outstanding, infectiously joyous new album by Le Vent du Nord. I found them first last week at the Americam International Folk Festival here in Maine..spellbound by their beautiful collaboration with one another and their magical blend of voices and instruments. It shines through on this album as well (although watching someone play the hurdy gurdy and sing at the same time is mesmerizing and can't be matched by a CD). Their musical interpretation of Lanlaire,(track 1), lyric by Gustave Nadeau is worth the price of the Cd alone..but then that could be said of almost every cut..Petite Reve, Mamzelle Kennedy, Rossignolet,and Ecris Moi stand out though..spellbinding and completely infecious..what joy!!!

HASH(0xa7960f84) out of 5 stars A smoothly presented and unforgettable taste of Canada's musical culture Nov. 16 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Quebec's Le Vent du Nord (The Wind of the North) presents their latest album La Part Du Feu, the theme of which reflects its title about individuals contributing to a shared future. The songs on La Part Du Feu dig the foundation of Canada's history and musical roots, from "Octobre 1837" which remembers a French uprising against British rule, to the reconstruction of the lyrics to the song "Elise". A smoothly presented and unforgettable taste of Canada's musical culture, highly recommended for international music CD collections. The tracks are Lanlaire (4:49), Octobre 1837 (4:01), La Mine (3:31), Petit Reve V (2:04), Mamzelle Kennedy (4:03), Les Metiers (2:54), Elise (5:37), Le Coeur en Trois (3:48), Rossignolet (3:54), Montcalm (2:42), L'attente (4:21), Le Cavalier et la Belle (4:07), and Ecris-Moi (3:32).
HASH(0xa75bf21c) out of 5 stars Not just for francophiles! March 26 2013

I perform a lot of traditional music (including a fair amount that features fiddle), and i generally prefer instrumental to vocal music. In addition, i've never been a big fan of Quebecois style fiddle, nor music sung in French. However, my wife and i were highly impressed at the talent and energy of Le Vent du Nord the first time we saw them, and were blown away by how amazingly more tight and captivating they'd become a year later when we saw them again.

We purchased this album some time ago, and it remains one of our very favorite CDs in our entire collection. After listening to excerpts of subsequent albums, La Part Du Feu seems to best capture the spirit and diversity of this ensemble. If you enjoy any type of folk, ethnic or acoustic music, i'd be mighty surprised if you were not enthralled by this recording.

I was originally introduced to Le Vent Du Nord with their album Dans Les Airs. This album is not significantly different in style, but it does retain their rather unique style of Quebec Folk.

I do not speak french, so I cannot vouch for the content of the lyrics, but all of their songs are pleasing to listen to. This album is a mix of danceable tunes that would fit in at a contra dance and short, folk-ballad style songs.
