"A fresh and exciting ensemble, one whose sound, like all the best blues, infuses the familiar elements with a unique, personal sensibility" (PopMatters), The Paris-based power blues trio bring irrepressible rock n' roll energy to passionate performances that are equal parts Mississippi Delta and French Caribbean. Brainchild of guitarist and singer Pascal Danaë —a veteran of work with Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour, Neneh Cherry, and Gilberto Gil —the band is named after Louis Delgrès, 19th century leader of the resistance in Guadeloupe who sacrificed himself in the rebellion against Napoleon's campaign to reintroduce slavery to the French Caribbean.
Finding inspiration in Delgrès' fight for freedom, Danaë assembled the trio with the raucous French drummer Baptiste Brondy and sousaphone master Raphael Goutiere, whose deep, pulsing bass lines emphasize the shared lineage of the brass band traditions of the Caribbean and the American south — namely the New Orleans second line. Among their first collaborative pieces was "Mo Jodi," a tune whose title translates from Creole as "I'll Die Today" and directly references their inspiration's sacrifice, and gives the band's incendiary 2018 Jazz Village debut recording its name. Their latest album, 4:00 AM, was released in 2021 and addresses the crisis of displacement and forced migration in the Global South.
