Via Pangée is a Québec traditional music duo formed by Louis Thibault and Philippe Girard. They both have been making music together since teenage, discovering different music styles and instruments. Studying music in college and at university, they developed they own musical and artistic identity while learning about Jazz and Popular Music. After a lot of travelling and other artistic projects during 2015, the idea of creating a duo of traditional music has emerged by early 2016. The two musicians decided that they would honor they cultural roots while staying open minded to others. Their musical project has been born under the name : Via Pangée. The band is inspired by different musical, rhythmic and sound elements distinctive to other countries and to their musical heritage. This project is a travelling experience, a real time cultural exchange getting inspired from everywhere and by honoring the heritage of Québec’s music.
