Brûlots by Chloé Sainte-Marie was taken from the compilation Putumayo presents Quebec. So far, it's the only song I've heard by Chloé (real name Marie-Aline Joyal), who hails from Drummondville. She's an actress turned singer, and recorded three albums so far. From the liner notes of the Quebec comp: 'Brûlots is from Sainte-Marie's 2002 album Je marcha á toi. It is based on a poem by Quebec writer Patrice Desbiens, with music composed by her frequent collaborator Gilles Bélanger. The title refers to a small fly, or midge, that is prevalent in the summer in Québec. Sainte-Marie sings of the gentle yet passionate intamcy of love. 'Oh sweet drop of rain, oh sweet rain coming in, on the furrow of my skin, you name calls out to mine.'
