Delgres

Caribbean-style blues in a mix between Ali Farka Toure, Tinariwen and Black keys. They define themselves as a Blues band but they are not restricted to the American musical style, above all, is the feeling and the emotion that they want to share. His music appeals to the body and soul, warming different audiences who often do not even know the meaning of his words, but who don´t stay indifferent or static. Pascal Danae (vocals and guitar) has played with Neneh Cherry, Peter Gabriel, Gilberto Gil, Youssou N'Dour, Ayo, and recorded albums with Morcheeba, Richard Bona, Souad Massi, Yael Naim, Asa and Mayra Andrade.

In this collective with Baptiste Brondy (drums) and Raphael Gouthiere (sousafone), all from Guadeloupe, no one forgets its origins and the name of the band reports to Louis Dèlgres, an officer of Napoleon who gave his life, in Guadeloupe, for the fight against the reestablishment of slavery in the French colonies. This defeat drove thousands of Guadeloupeans into the exile, notably to the Louisiana, the birthplace of the Blues.
