Meet the new generation of musicians joining the legacy of Montreal's Mile End
She-Devils, Essaie Pas and Jef Ellise Barbara are following in some mighty footsteps
For decades, Montreal's Mile End neighbourhood has — among other things — been a hub for creatives, from writers to filmmakers to musicians. The area has perhaps gained the most attention for the latter, with the likes of Arcade Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Malajube, Wolf Parade and Grimes going from the local scene to major international stages. And now, there's a new generation aiming to follow their footsteps.
In this segment for CBC Arts, directed by Guillaume Alcaraz with assistance from Sarah Lamb, you'll learn about the neighbourhood and see how musicians like She-Devils, Essaie Pas and Jef Ellise Barbara are utilizing its spaces to pursue their dreams.
