BioVocal ensemble Madrigaia was born in Manitoba, in the heart of Winnipeg's French community, in the spring of 1999. The seven women of Madrigaia, all musicians, dancers and actresses among the most respected in their musical community, took their love of singing and improvising together onto the stage. Madrigaia has created a highly original and entertaining show which unerringly enchants and captivates its fast-growing audiences. Drama, movement and pulsing, percussive elements are combined as they perform songs from over a dozen different countries, such as Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, India, Poland, Israel and of course from their French-Canadian roots. Madrigaia has had the honour of performing before personages of note and royalty, and has received recognition and accolades from its peers and professionals of the musical industry, such as producers Sergio Natureza (Brazil), Norman Dugas and Don Benedictson, composer Stephen Hatfield, performers Jane Siberry, Kiran Ahluwalia and The Toronto Tabla Ensemble and artistic director Louis Saint-Andr. Over several years, Madrigaia has toured across Canada from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island, in South America and more recently in France and Switzerland. Their debut album, Viva Voce (2002) has sold over 4200 copies world-wide and won a Canadian Independent Music Award (2003), in the Best World Music Album category. Their second album, Pleiades, released in September 2005, has been internationally acclaimed as the Best World-Fusion Album by the 5th Independent Music Awards 2006. Pleiades has just been nominated for best independent album at the 2006 Western Canadian Music Awards held in Winnipeg this year. .. ..........Myspace Layouts.. - ..Myspace Editor....
