SUONI-PER-IL-POPOLO1

Last of This Month’s Montreal Sessions from Suoni: June 29th 2015

SUONI-PER-IL-POPOLO1

Alas, the day has arrived…the last of an epic month of The Montreal Sessions freshly served by Suoni Per Il Popolo. A sad occasion indeed, but our hosts Paula and Pablo have many musical treats in store for us to make up for that. Over the past ~30 days, we’ve heard a selection of experimental jazz, rock, and classical music that explore the boundaries of modern music. We’ve also had numerous interviews and live performances from talented musicians taking part in the 2015 Suoni Per Il Popolo festival.

If you are keen to catch any of those passed episodes, check out our archives, and you can catch the last of June’s MTL Sessions this Wednesday from 3-5pm. Stay tuned for July’s show hosted by Saturn Returns, which you can read more about right here. These are exciting times, guys. Keep it locked~~

Howl! Arts Collective hosts The Montreal Sessions (#1)

We are very excited to welcome the Howl! Arts Collective into our studios to curate the April edition of The Montreal Sessions. Howl! is a Montreal-based collective of cultural workers, artists and activists working for social justice via artistic expression.

In addition to their ever-growing, prolific recorded catalog and an ongoing flurry of rad events, they’re pooling their efforts this month to host a Howl! concert series, rooted in Montreal’s fiercely creative independent arts community. From music to dance, spoken-word poetry to film, Howl! features a diversity of local, national, and international artists. Howl! aims to challenge corporate-directed musical modes by celebrating grassroots artists actively building bridges between the arts and activism for social justice. Hear them take over the CKUT airwaves every Tuesday in April from 3-5pm EST: stream it live here, and catch past episodes here.

ANL week 1

It’s time to welcome our March curators of The Montreal Sessions to the airwaves. Say hello to Art Not Love, Montreal’s relatively new non-genre-normative label, headed by artistic savants Charlie Twitch and Peggy Hogan.  This month they’ll be introducing listeners to their roster and what inspires their masochistic practices. Today, Rushing Silver will be on the phone for an interview about her music and Robby Reis, a prolific photographer, will be in studio to chat about his focus. Come for the art, stay for the love.
