Alaclair Ensemble

  • Canada
  • Unconventional hip-hop and all the better

Jokers or geniuses of hip-hop? Although the collective reveal a very personal aesthetic, - uninhibited lyrics in Frenglish, crazy clips and a website that stings your eyes - the fertile brains of this group have concocted some old school hip-hop, made in USA. Some say that Alaclair Ensemble are to Quebecer rap what Wu Tang Clan are to American rap: a trenchant sound and a demonic strike power. If you add some stunning second degree humour, this "low-Canadian post-Rigodon" promises to tear up the rule book. In other words, a live performance as forceful as their flow and their competitive beats.
