is a Canadian néo-trad
band of Franco-Ontarian
origins. The two main members of Swing are Michel Bénac and Jean-Philippe Goulet.
Contrarily to what the name could seem to suggest, its sound is not inspired by swing music
, only Quebecois folklore
, which is adapted with techno music
. The name comes from the Quebec French
, meaning in this context to dance
, and the phrase Swinge la bacaisse dans le fond d'la boîte à bois!
, a classic, almost cliché expression used in Quebec folk music
- La Vie comme ça
- La Chanson Sacrée
