Bourgie Hall presents

Alexandra Templier

Les Niños – Chant 1: La Nuit du cœur

A performance about humanity, combining flamenco, jazz, free improvisation, and theatre, as a ritual for our time.

Alexandra Templier, voice, texts, and artistic direction

Alexandra Templier trained in Paris in human sciences, theater and lyrical singing (soprano). In 2011, she moved to Madrid to learn flamenco singing from artists of the stature of Paco del Pozo (Lámpara Minera 1997), Mayte Martín and Esperanza Fernández. Two years later (2013), she won first prize in the Cantes de Ida y Vuelta category at the Suma Flamenca festival in Madrid. In 2014, she received the Escuela Musica Creativa award for “vocalist of the year”. In June 2015, with her personal project, Al Temple, she entered the programming of the Madrid Flamenco Festival. In July 2016, she moved to Montreal to pursue her artistic research.

Hugo Larenas, flamenco and electric guitars and co-artistic direction

Born in Montreal to Chilean parents, Hugo Larenas is a performer, arranger-composer and guitar teacher. He began studying the guitar at the age of 8. He holds a master’s degree in performance from the University of Montreal under the tutelage of Peter McCutcheon.

His musical journey leads him to explore several musical styles: from the folklore of his native land, through rock, flamenco and classical music. He has distinguished himself on the local and international music scene both as a performer-soloist and through his numerous contributions to a multitude of musical projects. In 2006, he won the first edition of the Montreal Guitar Grand Prix.
