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. After all, music is a manifestation of history. of choices and relationships. This is common to any art, discipline, individual, group or society. Through communication, real and imaginary differences and similarities become clearer. Separatist ghetto exoticism cannot exist in this space. Tamu juntos e misturados.
