You may think you’re listening to Tuareg rockers. But wait, could it be Cajun music from Louisiana? No, it’s blues! The music of Delgres contains the best of many worlds. French guitarist and singer Pascale Danae named his trio after a Creole officer who died in Guadeloupe – where Danae’s roots lie – fighting against Napoleon’s reinstatement of slavery. The unconventional composition of the band (guitar, sousaphone and drums) and Danae's old Dobro guitar give the music an earthy delta-blues sound. The trio plays trance-inducing blues rock – it’s as if The Black Keys have met Tinariwen on a Caribbean island and are bringing the ancestors of John Lee Hooker back to life. The sousaphone lets the bass line boom deeper and deeper through the soul of the listener, evoking the history of the Atlantic Ocean.
