Laura Niquay

La Tuque, QC

Laura Niquay presents Waska Matisiwin (Circle of Life), a sensitive and grandiose work that reveals her folk-grunge universe better than ever. From childhood, nourished by the sounds of her family’s classical guitars in the small community of Wemotaci in Mauricie, Laura picked up a guitar to compose her own songs. She distinguishes herself by her incomparable voice and by singing in her native language: Atikamekw. On stage, with 6 musicians, the show is festive and makes us live a roller coaster of emotions, the public being guided by the calm and authentic speech of Laura, who takes the time to transmit the values of her culture. A nomad well anchored in her time, a quiet force that is forging a place for herself at the heart of the contemporary Quebec musical landscape.
