Professional Percussionist


Music having always been part of her life, Joannie Labelle’s passion for rhythm evolved throughout her youth. With her Meinl percussions, beats now fuel her everyday life. Joannie started studying percussions with Alain Labrosse and developed her art with various instructors such as Afro-Cuban All Stars Rolando “El niño” Salgado, Latin percussion god Giovanni Hidalgo, Quebec percussion superstar Luc Boivin and Céline Dion’s percussionist Paul Picard.

Her recent activities include exclusive percussion workshop and special performances for Cirque du Soleil . She also performed with world music bands at Les FrancoFolies de Montréal and the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. Recently, Joannie has been invited to present her latest project, drum and percussion duo Blandilo, in venues such as the Montreal Museum of Modern Art, and for important events like the Montreal Drum Fest, the Eclipse Festival (Canada), the Festa dei Popoli, the Bari Jazz Fest (Italy) and the Fusion Festival (Germany).

Joannie is proud that she joined the SYLVIAERA Company in 2008 as a percussionist.
