Praised for his mastery of the eight string guitar, Thomas Carbou is a seasoned musician. With his undeniable taste for improvisation and desire to surprise, the guitar player, composer, musical arranger, percussionist, and sampler unveils a musical landscape without borders where cultures and styles merge smoothly. While combining elements that are often featured in jazz, electro, traditional, world, song, and folk music, Carbou takes us all around the world with his bold and pleasantly complex artistic proposal. He has successfully collaborated on numerous international artistic projects (performing on stage or in-studio with Glen Velez, Dave Liebman, David Binney, Jim Black, Nate Wood, Carlo Rizzo, etc.). He was awarded the Ville de Québec's Creation/Residence Award, as part of the 2007 Bourse RIDEAU, for his album IN MOTION. In 2010, his original score for Denis Villeneuve's "Remembering the Ashes - Regards sur Incendies" documentary, directed by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette (Le Ring et Les Petits géants), won a Gémeaux Award in the "Best Cultural Documentary" category. Whether he is playing solo or collectively, Thomas Carbou is a natural: he inspires and creates, as he breathes.
