Covering the wall of the Lion d’Or Cabaret, the mural pays tribute to Alys Robi, her career, her passion and her determination, but it also celebrates the golden years of Montreal cabarets (the 1940s). The large-scale portrait of Alys Robi is rendered in shades of blue to reflect her Québécois heritage and the Blue Note jazz aesthetics of the time. The background consists of references to the singer’s life illustrated as an array of graphic elements.
