Mauvais Sort on disc

Mauvais Sort (2008) its 4th album

Koru (2005), its 3rd album: creating a masterpiece
Resulting from immersion in different regions and from exposure to new sounds, this album, inspired by music from elsewhere, has strength and maturity. Mauvais Sort has masterfully turned a new page. This is really a new start—the meaning of the Maori word Koru.

Jettatura (2002), its 2nd album: strengthening the spell
Two years after its first album, Mauvais Sort came back to cast a spell—the meaning of the Italian term Jettatura—on its ever more numerous fans. New collaborations, vivid intensity, and casual ambience: this is the heartthrob of a second encounter.

Sans dessus dessous (2000), its 1st album: finding first love
Completely fresh, naïve, pure, and innocent, this Mauvais Sort album was love at first sight for its first fans. It offers the unfailing charm of discovering someone for the very first time. A future focus of remembrance … and a point of return…



Mauvais Sort (to put a spell on somebody) presents nowadays arrangements of old day’s folk music. Traditional lyrics mixed to contemporary musical compositions or original stories on old folk rhythms, the group overrules all preconceived notions about Québec Trad music. Regrouping young talented musicians with few musical backgrounds, Mauvais Sort has a musical style extremely hard to define, yet unique and proper to its generation. After more than 550 representations in 8 countries (Canada, Belgium, France, Switzerland, England, Scotland, New-Zealand and USA), a nomination at ADISQ for Traditional Album of the Year in 2003 with Jettatura and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Group of the Year with the album Koru in 2006, Mauvais Sort as won the heart of a lot of fans all around the world! These mid-twenties fellows astonish with their hi-quality show and the passions for reinvented traditions.
