The video for Betty Bonifassi’s song “No More My Lawrd” shows the fictionalized journey of a garment from the hands of a fatigued Asian factory worker to the closet of an affluent white child. It’s one of several modern-day interpretations of 19th- and early 20th-century African American chants on the singer’s self-titled 2014 album. Born in France and based in Québec, Bonifassi became fascinated with these songs — sung by slaves and prisoners — while listening to the field recordings of ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. The songstress, whose voice is heard on the soundtrack of the 2003 animated feature The Triplets of Belleville, serves up two free shows from an outdoor stage as part of the Montréal International Jazz Festival.
