Originally from Maliotenam in northeastern Quebec, the singer-songwriter Shauit, sings honest and committed songs that ingeniously combine his native language and traditional rhythms with other popular trends such as folk & reggae.
Shauit received the RIDEAU and RADARTS awards (showcase at ROSEQ 2015) and participated in several showcases such as Folk Alliance, APAP, International Festival of Louisiana, the Shibuya Festival (Japan) and the Zandari Festa (Korea) and a tour in Chili in November 2018 and in France in March 2019.
Shauit's influence and solicitations for his music continue to increase, and this one is even used for feature films and television series. Over the last few years, Shauit has played throughout Canada, in the United States and even in Europe, where he has conquered a loyal audience with his innovative style mixed with his indigenous culture. Whether solo, trio or full band, Shauit is pleased to present a dynamic show that keeps his audience on their feet, and have them live a journey filled with emotions and personal experiences.
Shauit is a proud representative of aboriginal culture all around the world and also won the prize of the “best album of the year in indigenous language across North America" at the Indigenous Music Awards in May 2018.
