Esmerine

Wakefield, QC

Co-founded by percussionist Bruce Cawdron and cellist Rebecca Foon in 2001, multi Juno-winning Esmerine keeps one foot in the new music/experimental terrain of contemporaries like Rachels’s, and the other in a more visceral and lyrical instrumental landscape, as cultivated by the likes of The Dirty Three. Esmerine has released seven critically-acclaimed albums of minimalist, expressive modern chamber music.
