PODORYTHMIE

Podorythmie, Quebecois for "foot rhythms", is a five member group hailing from the U.S., France and Canada.  They are known for their high energy and good time performances of Quebecois and Cape Breton music and dance.  Fiddle, accordion, songs and lots of hard shoe step dancing interspersed with crankie (moving panorama) shows makes their performances full of surprises.
