It grabs you in the gut and says This is where these guys are from, listen up. Burnt Project 1's music breaks down barriers and builds bridges, creating unity in diversity. Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the group formed in 1999 and has evolved to include David Boulanger (vocals, acoustic guitar), Marc Baureiss (electric guitar), Peter Baureiss (persussion), David Cramer (harmonica), Atik Mason (bass), and Neewa Mason (keyboard and vocals). The eleven-member ensemble generates a powerful sound that defies category by blending blues, jazz, rock, funk and traditional First Nations influences into a unique musical expression. Burnt's performances are powerful positive events. Audience involvement is overwhelming and listeners literally cannot stay seated... Everybody just gets up and dances.
