A taste of the FGMAT-19th edition !
Rouyn-Noranda, December 7, 2022 – As an end of year gift, the Festival des Guitares du Monde team is offering to music lovers a little taste of its upcoming program by announcing two Quebec artists. These artists will be honoring us with their presence at the Festival’s -19th edition, which will be held from Saturday May 27 to Saturday June 3, 2023.
Guided by our mission of discovering artists from all four corners of the earth, the programming committee succeeds brilliantly, year after year, providing a variety of surprising and beautiful discoveries! By joining forces with our two collaborators, Rouyn-Noranda’s Théâtre du cuivre and Malartic’s Théâtre Meglab who both share the same musical passion, the committee continues to offer great musical performances in our region.
AN EVENING OF DISCOVERY OF A MONTREAL ARTIST
Thanks to the collaboration of the Théâtre du cuivre, the Festival has the pleasure of presenting this multi-talented artist with an exceptional voice, the unique Hanorah.
Hanorah is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and visual artist from Montreal. Her smooth-textured voice will have you intoxicated from her very first notes. In addition to making it to the quarter-finals of La Voix in 2017, Hanorah recently opened for Mavis Staples, Seratones and Coeur de pirate. She also won the FEQ Apéros contest and performed at the Ottawa Bluesfest and the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

AN INTIMATE FIRST VISIT TO THE FESTIVAL
The FGMAT team pleased to announce our first-time visiting, artist and guitarist Louis-Jean Cormier along with his very intimate and most welcoming show!
This show will not only be presented at the Festival on Thursday, but also on Friday in Malartic thanks to a collaboration with the Théâtre Meglab.
Louis-Jean Cormier has worn many hats in his career: singer-songwriter, album producer, arranger, guest musician, radio and television host. After studying classical guitar at CEGEP, Cormier and friends founded the group Karkwa, which arrived on the French rock scene like a breath of fresh air. After winning several Félix awards and a Polaris, he decided to return to performing as a solo artist.
His show, Les passages secrets 2, mixes songs from his two most recent albums: Quand la nuit tombe and Le ciel est au plancher. With his singular guitar style and sincere voice, his songs take us to new avenues that will allow us to discover the heart and soul of this great artist.
