Upstream is delighted to welcome back the Carl Mayotte Trio. This high energy trio of fabulous musicians from Quebec City impressed Halifax audiences in 2022. We have caught them mid-tour!

Transportant le public dans une aventure musicale épique et rocambolesque, le concert Carnaval du Carl Mayotte Quintet sera certainement un des évènements jazz à voir en 2023-2024. Tirée du dernier album du récipiendaire du Félix de l’album jazz 2022, la musique jouée durant le concert se veut un hommage aux grands compositeurs brésiliens comme Djavan, Hermeto Pascoal et tant d’autres. L’énergie du groupe et la qualité des compostions font de ce spectacle un évènement unique et inoubliable.

It is through classical music, pop and jazz that the trio of musicians formed by Gabriel Cyr, Carl Mayotte and Stéphane Chamberland manage to share its emotions with the public. Each member is endowed with a strong and singular character between guitars, bass and drums.  

The Carl Mayotte Trio is the project of three students from the Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy. After winning the local Cégep's final competition in 2013, they won  the Quebec National Final with a mixture pieces written for film. Their breathtaking performance, theatrical staging and original arrangements earned them the first Desjardins Prize, the Vue sur la Relève Award and a participation in the Belfort International Festival of Music in France. The Carl Mayotte Trio is travelling across Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario this fall.
