Another installation in his excellent and informative mini-doc series, musician and documentarian Maga Bo interviews Ghislain Poirier – he talks about his background, making collaborations and building bridges, exoticism and problems with authenticity, and a lot more.
Bo sez –
With this series of mini-docs, I want to demystify the music production process a bit and bring out the humanity of it. Â After all, music is a manifestation of history. Â of choices and relationships. Â This is common to any art, discipline, individual, group or society. Â Through communication, real and imaginary differences and similarities become clearer. Â Separatist ghetto exoticism cannot exist in this space. Â Tamu juntos e misturados.
