CANADA, GUEST COUNTRY 2019
Guest country at the 5th edition of Linecheck is CANADA, true incarnation of the idea of #Diversity: bilingual, with a long history of migration and multiculturalism, with the 22% of the population born in a foreign country.
In music production Canada has always rejected the role of gregarious mingler, casting itself off from the American and British scene.
Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Alanis Morissette, Arcade Fire… an endless list of artists all hail from Canada: Toronto, Montréal, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Québec City. Different cities, thousands of miles apart, that feed the local music scenes by mixing sounds and cultures from around the world.
