Bel Kanto

Bel+KantoFrom: Montreal, QC, Canada

A French Canadian group from Montreal, Quebec. Originally known as Bel Canto Cing and then Bel Canto. Their last incarnation was as Bel Kanto. Their really collectable item is their sole English language 45, A Kind Of Break, a psychedelic offering with lots of fuzz. The flip was a ballad sung in French: indeed all their other releases were in French. Compilation appearances have included Decourage, an uptempo pop song, on Millionaires Des Groupes and Une Crois Sur Mon Nom on Le Retour Des Groupes, both K-Tel French Canadian compilations.
