On the second to last night of Montreal’s 39th Internation Jazz fest, Canadian Beats had the opportunity to check out a variety of genres and international acts. We started with Jain‘s second sold-out show. Having played at Osheaga last summer, this French electro-pop musician is known for her cross-cultural musical roots in Africa and the Middle East, which she takes from her upbringing living around the world. Then onto Club Soda for Kiwi experimental jazz-pop singer Kimbra. After rising to fame from her feature on Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”, Kimbra released several solo albums, including her recent 2018 album, Primal Heart. We wrapped up the night with Montreal reggae-punk-electro band Megative‘s second show on the main outdoor stage.
