Behind The Scenes of Quiet Parade’s “Partons La Mer Est Belle”

In March 2015, Quiet Parade recorded a reimagined version of the classic Acadian song “Partons la mer est belle” for Régénération Musicale, a unique compilation of 13 Nova Scotian artists offering contemporary interpretations of traditional Acadian songs.

The album, distributed as a project from FéCANE, is available on Thursday, April 30. The band performs at the album release, which is taking place at Nectar Restaurant and Wine Bar from 4pm-7pm that day.

Until then, watch a behind the scenes mini-doc that follows Quiet Parade in studio during the recording of the track.
