Safia Nolin

Safia Nolin


Art-Folk / Chanson-Punk (Québec QC)

Safia Nolin caught us off guard with her hard confessions, self-deprecation, and poetic sense of humour. There’s a mysterious touchstone that certain iconic Francophone songwriters possess; it’s a power to wield the language in a way that’s visceral and accessible beyond words. Serge Gainsbourg and Edith Piaf had it, so does Safia Nolin.

Kindred spirits: Kimya Dawson, Julie Doiron, the Juno Soundtrack in Québecois.

Her Harbour

Her Harbour



Dream-Folk / Baroque-Pop

There’s an unmade film, in stark black and white, flickering images of lost souls, enraptured lovers, and snowy landscapes fading in the shallow light of the winter sun. That unmade film could be soundtracked by Ottawa singer-songwriter Gabrielle Giguere, and her dream-folk project Her Harbour. Her husky alto sounds best when reflected off the thick concrete and aged wood of a church, which is where you can see her at this, her 2nd appearance at Arboretum Music Festival.
