Les Colocs (The Room-mates) were a rock music group from Québec formed in 1990 in Montreal. Founded in 1990 and fronted by Dédé Fortin, Les Colocs gave Québécois songs coloured with humanity, simplicity and social conscience (especially regarding poverty). They marked the history of Quebec music with their sound, infused with brass sounds, first very wild and festive, later more mellow, as well as more inspired by swing, country, blues and African music.
Following his untimely death, Fortin was the subject of many tributes from Quebec’s arts scene and fellow Colocs members, including the posthumous album Suite 2116 (2001) and the biopic Dédé, à travers les brumes (2009). In January 2006, the village of Saint-Thomas-Didyme renamed the street where the artist was born chemin Dédé-Fortin. Founded in Montreal in 1990, Les Colocs had a profound impact on the 1990s music scene in Quebec. In 1993 they landed a contract and recorded their first album, Les Colocs, which was met with phenomenal success around the province. Les Colocs: André Fortin.
