It’s now official. This fall, MAZ will be sharing its music at WOMEX 17 in Katowice, Poland, the most international of all professional music meetings. We are honored, proud and thrilled!

MAZ proudly announces the release of its third album, entitled ID (“idea”) on March 31st. For the occasion, the band releases a new video featuring remodeled Québécois hook “La guenille”.
CD launch events are planned in Quebec in the coming months :
- Wednesday, March 29th, from 6 to 8 PM : the Montreal CD launch at Café du Monument-National (1182, St-Laurent blvd) – with special guests.
- Thursday, April 20th, 7:30 PM : Lanaudière event at Carrefour culturel in Notre-Dame-des-Prairies (171, Curé-Rondeau street) – double launch with Les Chauffeurs à Pieds.
- Tuesday, May 2nd, from 5 to 7 PM : Quebec event at the District Saint-Joseph (252, St-Joseph street East) – double launch with Les Chauffeurs à Pieds.
With ID, MAZ delivers a style of music that has matured and come into its own, and also reveals rich new voices. Decidedly contemporary, and intrinsically rooted in tradition, these voices speak to the heart and body … without losing the mind! They invite us on a journey to rediscover Quebec’s musical heritage, while opening up delightful new perspectives.
Recorded in Lanaudière, Quebec, at the mythic Chemin 4 Studio, ID is coproduced by Mark Busic (Le Vent du Nord, Les Charbonniers de l’Enfer) and Marc Maziade (MAZ, Réveillons!).
