Story and songs Gilles Vigneault Illustrations Stéphane Jorisch Singers Ariane Moffatt, Pierre Lapointe, Garou, Luce Dufault, Martin Léon, Luc De Larochellière and Jessica Vigneault

 « Je lis – Je chante » Collection

The tale of an improbable group of musicians who come together to play their instruments in old Kyoto. The curious cast includes banjo-playing cane-wielding Joe from “Cajun land,” his Japanese wife adorned in a floral kimono, their Spanish friends, and a Buddhist monk.

The narrated story is followed by recordings of the songs « Comptine en mode zen » and « A, B, C, D ». 

As a member of the Canadian Author / Songwriters Hall of Fame, Gilles Vigneault is hailed as one of Canada’s most influential music figures of the 20th century, especially as a champion Québécois folksinger. His work often evokes his great love of nature and the passion he has for his hometown of Natashquan, a remote, windswept village on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. He has received numerous distinctions including the “Grand prix du disque et de l’Académie Charles-Cros” in France and the “Médaille Vermeil” offered by the City of Paris.

Stéphane Jorisch is a four-time winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award, the Ruth Schwartz Children’s Book Award and the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator’s Award. He has also created set designs for Le Cirque du Soleil.
