Delgres

Homebase:France/Guadelupe

Genre:Caribbean Blues
“It’s as if everything I’ve done with my life until now led me to this moment,” said Pascal Danaë, talking about when he realized Delgres was not just another project, but instead a turning point in his career. So, who exactly make up the Delgres band behind this debut album? They are a Caribbean blues trio, a genre mainly sung in Creole nowadays, and they came together four years ago after Pascal met the drummer, Baptiste Brondy, and the sousaphone player, Rafgee. They essentially represent a personal adventure, an inner journey for which music acts as the imaginary, although vibrant, vehicle of private experience and family history as well as, more broadly speaking, the destiny of a part of the world marked by its rootlessness and identity struggles.
“C’est comme si tout ce que j’avais fait dans ma vie jusqu’alors m’avait mené à ce moment », dit Pascal Danaë quand il a réalisé que Delgres n’était pas juste un autre projet mais plutôt un tournant dans sa carrière. Mais alors, qui fait partie de Delgres, le groupe derrière ce premier album ? Il s’agit d’un trio du blues antillais, un genre principalement chanté en créole de nos jours, formé il y a quatre ans lorsque Pascal a rencontré le batteur, Baptiste Brondy, et le joueur de sousaphone, Rafgee.
