In the 1920s, La Bolduc was the first female singer to speak to the Québec working class, in the language of the working class. Queen of Canadian Folksingers, she was famous for her Turlute, a traditional folk style that sings out instrumental partitions with evocative phonemes.
70 years later, Lusio Films creates the musicalweb-documentary Les Enfants de la Bolduc (Children of La Bolduc), inviting contemporary Québec artists to rediscover their musical heritage.
Daily Tous Les Jours was invited to create a Turlute Machine that would bring their music to the general public, traveling around the province like La Bolduc once did.
