    I'm not too sure about the new album. I mean, it's nice and all, but I just feel like the emphasis is not on the cello as much as in the previous albums. That wouldn't necessarily have to be a bad thing, but I just really enjoyed that part of her music. Still, it's good enough :)

    Superbe performance offert par Jorane hier au Francofolie de Montréal. Jorane était simplement superbe, présente, enjouée, généreuse, ... avec l'Orcheste Symphonique du Grand Montréal c'était simplement enivrant.

    avant-garde would apply to her newest album as well. It seems her newest one is the least popular.. :/ its so great though. Its so hard to classify her, this discussion could go on forever..

    Just out of interest, what genre has everyone else put her music under? I'm finding it hard to classify this music in iTunes, but I don't want to leave it with no genre.

    I'd say looks.. from the videos of performances i've seen I don't think she uses all 5, although that would be really awesome.

    does she actually use all 5 bows on her fingers at once or is it just for looks?

    New album, in French, is back to darker, grimier territory. But her voice is as lovely as ever!
