POP Montréal Jour 4 | Beatrice Deer, From the Great North to Outremont

par Alain Brunet

POP Montréal is undoubtedly one of the major fall events for true music fans. From Wednesday, September 27 to Sunday, October 1, dozens and dozens of discoveries and acclaims from artists nestled in pop are taking place in Montreal. Follow the PAN M 360 team until Sunday!

If her community sees her up close, we see her in the distance. Beatrice Deer paddles among the pop stars of the Far North, the kayak docked in Montreal this Saturday. For at least a dozen years, this Inuit artist has been expressing and refining her craft that has become art.

Surrounded by very good musicians keen on all the genres constituting Americana, she also integrates the traditional songs and throat games of Nunavik, she also honors her Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) heritage on her father’s side or white Quebecer on her father’s side. Grandmother.

Even if sometimes sneering and endowed with caustic humour, Beatrice Deer exudes gentleness, empathy, and wisdom. She takes her time to communicate with her audience, in English, Inuktitut, and French. His presentations are for the most part tinged with a commitment to the indigenous cause and the denunciation of colonial oppression.

So she found herself at the Outremont Theater on the evening of the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. The floor is two-thirds full, the rest is empty, so no real major buzz in this plot of unceded territory. Would a concert given at the Rialto have attracted more? Who knows.

The music on the program (notably the material from the album Shifting, released almost 2 years ago) brings together folk and rock forms, with a few exploratory components popping up here and there in his recent repertoire.

Beatrice Deer, in fact, is not an emerging artist; she is indeed part of this historic renaissance of indigenous culture that began at the turn of the 2010s, when she came into play.
