Discover the music from Quebec that Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut David Saint-Jacques is listening to during his space mission!

During a videoconference with youth gathered at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, CSA astronaut David Saint-Jacques answers the following question, live from the International Space Station: "Do you have a favourite piece of music to listen to in space?" (Credit: CSA/NASA)


Since , David Saint-Jacques has been living aboard the International Space Station. What does he do in his free time? He takes the opportunity to call his loved ones and do some reading (he even makes recommendations once in a while on social media). He also takes time to look at Earth from space, and he really enjoys listening to music and discovering new artists.

David asked his friend Nicolas Tittley, music journalist, to compile different playlists that he can listen to while he's in space. This particular list exclusively features musicians from Quebec.
