Territoires, Oumigmag's first album, is the story of a quest,, a journey through the imaginary, spiritual and geographical territories of Quebec. It is the story of the Muskox, said Oumigmag in Inuktitut. The musical and poetic universe of Territories draws inspiration from different sources. The pristine nature surrounding Lake Arthabaska, the Native American medicine wheel and its rich symbolic for the Four directions cycle and a traditional Quebecois air with Pour la suite du monde as heard in the namesake film. Composer Sébastien Sauvageau brought together a group that cultivates the subtle balance between pure energy and contemplation in today's jazz mixed with so-called "traditional" music. Powerful, evocative and luminous music.
