Rocking stages of all sizes since their inception in 2011, Bodh'aktan conquers crowds everywhere! With an attitude of "take no prisoners" this band has confidently taken the stage in the company of bands such as La Bottine Souriante, Les Trois Accords, Eric Lapointe, and Les Cowboys Fringants.
Seven musicians lined up on the front of the stage, waging war on the mundane! Music, beards, sweat and fun – energy at top speed!
Bodh’aktan’s first ablum, Au Diable les Remords put the band in the eye of the storm; this is a band which knows how to have fun, but also knows how to work hard! After more than 200 shows in three years, Bodh’aktan is just getting going!
Armed with little more than their kilts and their beards, the boys have seen every corner of Quebec. They have brought their show, their love of music, and their infectious party atmosphere to Las Vegas, France, Germany, Italia, Belgium and USA.
Towards the end of 2013, Bodh’aktan released its second album, “Tant Qu’il Restera du Rhum.” Just like its predecessor, this album was also nominated for Rock Album of the Year at the 2014 ADISQ gala awards. It was co-produced by Fred St-Gelais (Marie-Mai, Juno-nominated producer), features Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea) as a co-writer on Dansez (Dance Hey), and showcases the talents of Yves Lambert on the song Trash Tombola. The popular singer of the Matmatah, Tristan Nihouarn, also lends his voice to the song Lambe an Dro.
"Bodh’aktan’s music combines elements of celtic, trad-Quebecois, polka, punk, Irish folk, Breton and Maritime. The result, based on a solid formula of energetic rock, is fantastically exciting and well-conceived. This is a gargantuan achievement!" - MusikUniverse.net
