The Fondation Phi pour l’art contemporain is happy to invite you to Music to Give Peace A Chance, presented in conjunction with the exhibition LIBERTÉ CONQUÉRANTE/GROWING FREEDOM by Yoko Ono. This compact series of concerts features Montréal artists who will perform a set from their own repertoire and then invite the audience to take part in a rousing sing-along to the timeless anthem Give Peace a Chance. On June 12th at 7PM, don't miss the performance of DONZELLE who is a blend of dodgy rap metaphors, dispassionate danseuses, irreverent feminist attitude, and down and dirty basslines.
Donzelle is the alter ego of Roxanne Arsenault, a fixture on the Montreal music scene for more than 15 years as an artist, DJ and radio host, who is also active in visual arts (La Centrale, Centre CLARK) and as an impassioned ambassador for kitsch heritage. As Donzelle, she brings a singular, non-traditional voice to the mostly male Quebec rap scene, with disruptive, commanding compositions that accentuate revelry, advocacy and empowerment.
