Step into the multicultural world of Music Mosaic featuring some highly accomplished Music PEI Week award nominees: Fayo, Sirène & Matelot (Lennie Gallant and Patricia Richard), SOPA World Music Ensemble, Vishtèn, and special guests. Fayo is a french singer-songwriter by the name of Mario Leblanc. Residing in Mont Carmel, Fayo writes and sings in chiac, a bilingual dialect mixing french, english, and old Acadian words.

Lennie Gallant and Patricia Richard formed the duo Sirène & Matelot and released their self-titled debut album in 2019. With Sirène & Matelot, they wanted to explore songwriting that reflects not only their roots and influences but also their concerns about the current state of the world. Their voices blend seamlessly and their melodies reach beyond language barriers. The Holland College School of Performing Arts (SoPA) World Music Ensemble are students in the popular performing arts program in Charlottetown. They will showcase a variety of different musical genres and instrumentation. For over a decade, the Acadian trio Vishtèn has dazzled audiences with its fiery blend of traditional French songs and original instrumentals that fuse Celtic and Acadian genres with a modern rock sensibility and indie-folk influences.
