From Marc Escarbot Theatre in Church Point, Nova Scotia to the International Festival of Shanghai, BLOU does not cease sowing its unique style of music. We had to invent a word to describe it - ACADICO. As a hurricane, BLOU was born in Nova Scotia in 1994. The Acadian people fell in love with the sound right away. The origin of the name BLOU comes from an aboriginal man who lived at the end of the street where BLOU resides, "L'Allée des Blou".

The show for young public continued and gradually were added cultural centres, festivals, special events, cabarets, bars and other cultural places in Acadie.

In 1998 BLOU self-produced its first opus and selected the title - ACADICO. The disc was published under independent label and is still a great success in the Atlantic provinces to this day.

In 1999 BLOU's career took another turn. BLOU collects a horde of prizes for its first recording: winning an ECMA Award for "FRANCOPHONE ALBUM OF THE YEAR" and the Éloizes prize for "ARTIST OF THE YEAR".

BLOU is still indisputably on the road towards bigger success. Taking part in several international events. Recognized in the French-speaking communities as well as the anglophone communities across Canada, BLOU hopes to continue promoting Acadian and French Canadian culture through out the world.

2012 began in great way as BLOU won the award"ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR - FANS CHOICE"  at the East Coast Music Award.  BLOU became the 1st francophone in the ECMA's history (24th years) to won the award.  This achievement will be stay in francophone history as one of the best achievement for a francophone artist.
