Révélation Radio-Canada Musique 2010-2011

Rafael Zaldivar was born in Camagüey, Cuba. Coming from a family of musicians, he started playing percussion and piano at age 10 and pursued his undergraduate studies at the Superior Art Institute of Havana. Moving to Canada at age 22, he obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Montreal and a Master’s degree at McGill University within three years.

Rémi Bolduc comes from St-Hyacinthe, a city north of Montreal. By 15, he was already playing saxophone professionally. Back then, jazz was very much on his mind and by 19, he was to settle in Montreal where he would work on his trade with saxophonists Sayydd Abdul el Khabbyyr, Simon Stone and Bob Mover. Shortly after his arrival in town, he was noticed by big band leader and composer Vic Vogel, who would immediately praise his new protégé by saying that “he plays like the devil”!
