Hugo Blouin

double bass

Double bassist and sound artist, Hugo Blouin is interested in tradition, improvisation and experimentation. In 2016, he encounters the MAZ ship and crew at the junction of these currents and hops aboard.

Over the last fifteen years, he led and contributed to many projects in relation to his eclectic practice, from chanson française to sound art, to jazz and folk music. Among them  Charbonneau ou les valeurs à’ bonne place (2018 Jazz Album of the Year GAMIQ Award), Brasser Brassens, L’Orchestre Pic-bois and the Jonathan Turgeon Trio (2018 Stingray Rising Stars Award at the Montreal Jazz Fest). Hugo Blouin lives and works in Montreal.
