DOLMAN / ROSSY / JOBIN
Dolman / Rossy / Jobin is a Montreal-based experimental trio led by drummer, composer and lyricist Aaron Dolman, alongside vocalists Sarah Rossy and Eugénie Jobin. The group's unique, minimalistic instrumentation harnesses the expressive powers of percussion and the human voice as primordial conveyors of rhythm, melody, poetry and song.
Their eagerness to explore unfamiliar sounds and approaches is informed by a number of musical traditions, notably, Jazz, free improvisation, chamber music, Minimalism, the avant-garde and North American folk music. The result is a strikingly distinctive sound that feels both intimately familiar and refreshingly new.
In 2023, the group was awarded one of only two "Bourses Création Jazz" from the Montreal Arts Council. They also recently received the François-Marcaurelle Award at the 23rd edition of the OFF Festival de Jazz de Montréal, and were featured in an interview with Le Devoir (French), which can be found HERE.
