Lhasa de Sela, was one of the first artists, that I was aware of, who chose to live in Montreal for all the same reasons that I adore Montreal. I was born here, have always lived here, and have a very strong sense of my luck and privilege to be comfortably seated between three cultures; Italian, French, and, English. This is what makes Montreal beautiful to me, the fact that so many of us are multicultural and if we aren't then at least we have embraced this multiculturalism. Lhasa de Sela in her second album The Living Road moves with such ease and incredible talent between Spanish, French, and English. She was part of that Indie music movement that included Patrick Watson, Plants and Animals, The Arcade Fire. Montreal artists who made art together regardless of their language or origin that exploded in the early 2000s.Lhasa was fiercely a Montrealer. And both the Francophone and Anglophone communities embraced her.

The most recent immigrants arrived believing linguistic conflicts were ancient history.

Our story takes place on the Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki , Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these nations and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters. We also call upon all levels of government to adopt and implement the 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation commission.
