Born from a french Canadian mother and a Palestinian father and raised in Lachute, QC, Guillaume Jabbour fronts original music band Jabbour and plays in other musical projects as a professional gigging musician. As an Art Educator, he is interested in using tech in the classroom to create sonic art. Guillaume lives with his wife and two children in Gore, QC, where he can often be seen with a handheld recorder waiting for the perfect moment to capture the lonely call of the loon.
