Le Vent du Nord – Ma Louise


Traditional words and music, composition by Simon and André, arr. LVDN

This song comes from our friend Robert Deveaux, the custodian of songs from Chéticamp, Cape Breton Island. The melody that accompanies this sad yet light-hearted story is co-composed by Simon and André. As a result of playing each other’s tunes for so long, we ended up making a brand new one! At times, and this is the case here, oral tradition gives us these old tunes that have multiple meanings and, in the end, transform seemingly simple tales into great love stories.

Song available in digital MP3.
