In Montreal the Canada Council brought together musical groups from all across Canada in a showcase designed to promote some of the best Canadian aboriginal and world music artists recording and performing today. The idea behind this event was to create a greater awareness of the diversity of music being created in Canada. The result was an explosion of creativity reflecting Canada's new ethnic mix.
Canada Council brought together a group of fifteen such Bands from across the country in a musical extravaganza titled Exposed Roots. Selected by peers through a process based on artistic merit and tour experience, each group played a 25 minute set during the weekend of November 22st to 23rd at Maison De La Cultute Ahuntsic-Cartierville in Montreal. Over a hundred European festival promoters, Canadian soft-seat venue presenters (concert hall like Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, for example), along with managers and agents are expected to attended. Canada Council has produced a directory, a compilation CD and posters while hosting workshops for artists on developing Canadian and European markets and networking sessions with music agents and managers. Canadian world and roots music has finally come of age.
