Bob Landry Query: La Bottine Souriante (17) RE: Query: La Bottine Souriante 02 Dec 99

One of my all time faves as well. Especially their version of "La rille du porc-au-pique" (if I spelled that correctly.) A few years ago, CBC flew La Bottine Souriante to Toronto to jam with a brass band from there (I forget the name of that group). Neither group uses drums; La Bottine Souriante use their feet for rhythm, Quebec-style (toc-a-toc, toc-a-toc,etc.) Although the two groups knew of each other, they had never met, if I remember correctly. They were allowed to practice for less than a day if I remember correctly. Then CBC rolled the cameras and broadcast the results. WOW!
