Mes Aïeux (My ancestors) is a folk music group from Quebec, Canada founded in 1996. Although they are labeled as leaders of the "neo-traditional" movement in Quebec, they frequently use subjects and characters from traditional Québécois folklore in order to approach modern themes with a sense of humor. These themes include globalization (Qui nous mène?), politics (Ça va mal), generational conflicts (Dégénérations/Le reel du fossé), over-medicating (Remède miracle), the frenetic pace of modern life (Train de vie (le surcheval), Continuer pareil), recent Quebec history (2096 (chanson à boire), Ton père est un croche etc. In November 2005 their album "En famille" went platinum (100,000 copies sold) and their two earlier albums, "Ça parle au diable" and "Entre les branches" both went gold (50,000 copies sold). In December 2006, "En famille" was certified double platinum (200,000 copies sold) and their latest album "Tire-toi une bûche" went gold after only three weeks.
