Esmerine is a Canadian modern chamber music group co-founded by percussionist Bruce Cawdron and cellist Beckie Foon. Cawdron and Foon have contributed to other Montreal-based groups as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Set Fire to Flames, Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band and Mile-End Ladies' String Auxiliary. The two met in 2001 while recording the first Set Fire to Flames record in Montreal.
Esmerine's music consists mainly of percussion, cello, and marimba, lacking the guitars present in other Godspeed You! Black Emperor side projects. Esmerine's style shares many characteristics with minimalist classical music and chamber music.
