Information/Write-up

Gala's anthology features pop and jazz singers from the heyday of Broadway, radio and the early days of television.

These divas have left their record and radio traces in the history of music in Canada. Two divas have become international stars (Deanna Durbin, Beatrice Lillie); some have conquered this coveted American market (Gisele MacKenzie, Dorothy Collins).

Some have become stars nationally (Juliette and Catherine McKinnon).

Others were singers who traveled the country with the swing orchestras of their time.

"Candian Divas" also highlights the contribution of little-known singers. The jazz voices of Phyllis Marshall, Norma Locke and Georgia Dey. Appreciated by a whole generation of Candians, it is an opportunity to rediscover these singers who marked their time.
