“Sisters Isabelle and Nathalie Arsenault grew up in a very musical family (Les Jos Bibienne as they are known in the Évangéline region of PEI). Although they grew up in the Charlottetown area, they have fond memories of family gatherings in the Acadian region of where their Dad and his numerous brothers and sisters would jam up a storm. Their instrument of choice growing up was their feet, constantly improving on the rhythms and beats provided by the percussive nature of step dancing. Nathalie and Isabelle won numerous competitions, including island champion, participated in national competitions, and performed with prominent artists such as Natalie McMaster, Richard Wood, and many more.
Their unique style has been forged over the years, combining improvisation, heavy rhythmic syncopations, and a contagious “Joie de vivre”.
