Fronted by Pascal Danaë and complemented by drummer Baptiste Brondy and sousaphone player Rafgee, they loosely describe themselves as a blues trio. Traversing a myriad of sounds and influences they meld their own route via their cultural, historical and emotional roots - the missing link between French, Caribbean and US musical culture - that arrives amidst Ali Farka, Creole and the Black Keys to create their own exhilarating brand of bluesy, garage-rock.
Inspired by and from where they take their name - the influential figure of Louis Delgres who was instrumental in the fight against colonial slavery looms large on the album - title track, Mo Jodi (I’ll Die Today)is a tribute to his fight. Anchored in history, the resultant album is a brilliant representation of their own personal journey, the music both in broader terms and closer to home is a portrayal of rootlessness, struggles and exasperation that exists still to this day just on another page.
Support on the night comes from Dana Immanuel and the Stolen Band,a banjo-whacking, guitar-shredding, fiddle-sawing, foot-stomping, whiskey-soaked, all-female assault on the senses. Since 2014, this London-based ladyband have been delighting diverse crowds spanning the blues, rock, Americana, indie, folk and country scenes with their high-energy live show and utterly unique brand of musical badassery.
