Commando Trad

“Tradition” is often at a crossroad of being preserved or being left behind in favour of something new.  A group of dedicated trad music lovers in Montreal had no such doubts.  They took the timeless tunes, songs and dances of their heritage and combined them with the current climate of Take Action!  The result – Commando Trad;  a series of musical flash mobs in public spaces, to alert the Quebecois population to the riches of their own music.    TradChat talked to the co-founder, Véronique Plasse, and you’ll find the interview here in a few posts.  For now, enjoy watching Mission 1 of Commando Trad!
