With their latest album, 2017’s En panne de silence, Bon Débarras moves boldly into a repertoire that is almost entirely original, steeped in poetry and rhythmic urban sounds – and even a touch of Aboriginal influence. More innovative than ever, the trio remains true to the rhythms of French-speaking America with those unambiguous Quebec flavors supported by a newcomer – the fiddle. And that’s how, over the years, this warm-hearted band has been able to carry on an identity, a style and an energy-filled zest for life quite unique and beautifully served by the versatility of the musicians as well as their daring jigging and vivid body percussion.


En panne de silence by Bon Débarras takes us on a journey where anything is possible. While a solitary kitchen party is on, an opinionated dance caller, a mad dancer, a theatre ghost and a lover inspired by the seasons show up.

You need a live performance of the trio to fully experience the many traditions of francophone America which coexist in their swing and in a repertoire now mostly made of original compositions sometimes overflowing with rhythmic poetry. The stage is set for jigs, dances and some blazing body percussions, because their distinctive physical atmosphere embedded in their music is definitely Bon Débarras’ trademark.

Bon Débarras’ music is not only an antioxidant for the soul, it will tickle your inner silence with a compelling energy calling for foot stomping and dancing!


With Playing Hooky, Bon Débarras takes you on a whirlwind musical journey through various communities from which they have drawn their inspiration, including Québec, Acadia and Louisiana. Feet stomping, hand clapping, leg slapping and full-on singing are to be expected from both performers and the audience alike. Presented in schools and various children’s festivals throughout Canada and France, this show will not fail fail to move you and give you a spring in your step.
