“When I’m in Rivière-Ouelle, I imagine my great-great-grandfather arriving at the wharf by boat. The place is full of history for my family, and the peace there is so precious.”

Klô Pelgag is a singer-songwriter from Gaspésie. Her most recent album, Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs [Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows], refers to a sombre place name that scared her as a child, and which turned out to be an idyllic village — a duality reflected in her songs. We found her on a calm day at the riverside in Rivière-Ouelle, the cradle of her ancestors.
