A citizen of the world | Nolton Lake

Félix Brassard lived a good part of his youth in Vietnam. His folk music, with sounds both Western and Eastern, is still tinged today.
With his musical project Nolton Lake and his first folk album released in May 2018, Anahata, he makes us travel far from here.

“During my childhood, I was surrounded by so many different cultures! These first years forged me by what I ate, by the human relations that I had and all that I listened as music. To have access to particular instruments inspired me, and the sitar was in my head; an instrument as open as I was. Felix Brassard.

Meet in an autumn rain with Nolton Lake and his song All My Blessings, composed in this meditative mood.
