Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer


Les Charbonniers de l'Enfer are an a cappella folk music group formed in Quebec, Canada, in 1994.

The group is part of a revival in interest in Quebec's folk music. It was formed by five experienced singers who have been part of the regional folk music scene for more than 30 years: Michel Faubert, Normand Miron, Jean-Claude Mirandette, Michel Bordeleau, and André Marchand. Their instrumental accompaniment is limited to the jaw harp and foot tapping. The musicians also work in other projects and the band's appearances are relatively rare. The group includes two former members of La Bottine Souriante (Bordeleau and Marchand).

Their 2005 album En concert à la Tulippe: "En personne" (In concert at la Tulippe: "In Person") won the 2006 ADISQ Félix Award for best album of traditional Quebec music.
