Without knowing it, Quebeckers have been humming Luc Cousineau’s jingles for years. Cousineau grew up in a musical family, surrounded by his two brothers: one a composer, the other the founder of the École des Petits Violons. While he is known for his arrangements and his catchy tunes, he was also a singer songwriter with the duo Les Alexandrins and later, Luc et Lise, with his wife, Lise Vachon. He also made several highly personal albums, without regard for passing trends. With commentary by his daughter, Karine Cousineau and his associates, along with his own accounts, the film presents the work of this passionate musician who forged a career in music with bold determination.
