Through an old Dobro guitar, voices of forgotten heroes wishpered at Pascal Danae’s soul.
A big brother gone too soon…
Louise Danae, the ancester, freed from slavery in 1841 along with her three children. She was 27.
Louis Delgres, mixed race officer who gave his life fighting against the return of slavery in Guadeloupe (french west indies) in 1802…
Pascal closed his eyes and one by one the songs came to life. A new heart beating!
This heart beat had the sound of Baptiste Brondy’s drums.
Baptiste and Pascal met in winner of Victoire de la musique 2015 band ( like french Grammy Awards).
Riviere Noire that Pascal co founded.
Those two breathe alike, pure instinct.
But still they needed more air.
That one noble instrument New-Orleans born that gets even lost souls to march and dance. Rafgee’s Sousaphone. The result is a new breed of power trio.
Soaked in blues though urban and open to the world. No nostalgia here but today’s music that sounds between Ali Farka Toure, Tinariwen and the Black keys. Delgres, the missing link? by @delgresband
