This Week’s Concert: Xarah Dion

The Urban Forest

Every Wednesday during the summer, join us in the Urban Forest for a series of free summer concerts organised with new partnership and featuring up-and-coming groups. Suoni Per Il Popolo Festival is presented by the Société des Arts Libres et Actuels. The SALA advances/encourage experimental up-and-coming music in a community  context.


July 5, 2017: Xarah Dion

Montreal’s Xarah Dion works in the experimental synthpop realm. She ushers in a vangard yet classic sound infused with 80s industrial and disco influences. Dion’s productions stand out with their intricacy and signature melodies and the use of the French language. Her well-received first LP Le Mal Nécessaire (2014) brought her to widely tour Europe over the course of two years. The latest LP FUGITIVE (2016) expanded Dion’s unique tone within skillfull arrangements and orchestrations layered into feverish sequences and rythms.

Free concert and open to all.

Location: Victoria Street, between Sherbrooke Street West and President-Kennedy Avenue.
Unless otherwise indicated, concerts will be cancelled in case of rain.
