The MapleList Number 942 – Malajube

Today’s MapleList group is Malajube, our first Francophone member, number 942. Canada is officially a bilingual country, French and English. The province of Quebec is the centre of Canada’s Francophone culture.


Malajube was formed in the early 2000’s in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec. Their first album was released in 2004 and received instant rave reviews and became staples of the Quebec radio scene. The album is titled “Le Compte complet” and is worthy of a listen.


Prior to going on hiatus, the band consisted of:

Julien Mineau– Vocals, lyrics and guitar

Francis Mineau – Drums

Mathieu Cournoyer – Bass

Thomas Augustin – Keyboards and vocals


On the awards front, the band was short-listed for the 2006 and 2009 Polaris Music Award and has garnered 3 Felix Awards, the Quebec Music Awards.


I have chosen a live version of a very catchy alternative tune, “Montreal -40°C”. Enjoy, great song.
