World Music: Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer, "Yes, Very Well"

-Buy the album

(Canada) Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer (Coal Miners from Hell) are an a capella group from Quebec who have been raising the roof -- and the bar -- with Quebecois folk music for ten years. The group consists of five singers (Michel Bordeleau, Michel Faubert, André Marchand, Jean-Claude Mirandette, Normand Miron) who are also avid researchers of the traditional repertoire. Both Bordeleau and Marchand are former members of the seminal folk group "La Bottine Souriente." "Yes, Very Well" is a hunting song, and an excerpt from a concert at the La Tulipe cabaret in Montreal. It shows off Jean-Claude Mirandette's passionate and forceful tenor voice, as well as the band's amazing precision. It's a real rouser that lifts the audience to its feet-- an amazing accomplishment for a band with no instruments other than their own bodies, and a testament to a rich and durable folk legacy.
