Oct 5th- DELGRES at 7:30pm
With musicians Pascal Danae (guitar/vocals), Rafgee (sousaphone) and Baptiste Brondy (drums/vocals), Delgres is a new breed of power-trio, with foot-stomping grooves and slide guitar twang soaked in urban rhythm! Delgres’ sound is soaked in blues though urban and open to the world, and sounds somewhere between Ali Farka Toure, Tinariwen and the Black keys.
The group takes their name from Louis Delgrès, an African officer who gave his life fighting against Napoleon’s enforced reinstatement of slavery on Guadeloupe in 1802. Rooted in a lived history of diaspora, Delgres links French, Caribbean and US cultures, creating a soulful musical gumbo of swampy Mississippi Delta blues, Caribbean rhythms and Big Easy funk and drive.
