Biography

An anti-slavery hero from the West Indies, known for the proclamation signed in his name in 1802, which was a high point in Guadeloupe's resistance to Napoleonic troops, Louis Delgrès had no idea that his patronymic would serve as inspiration for musicians two centuries later. For it is to him that the name of the Creole blues-rock band founded in 2018 by Baptiste Brondy (drums), Rafgee (bassophone) and Pascal Danaë, a multi-instrumentalist and singer who has previously worked with Gilberto Gil, Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour, Neneh Cherry, Morcheeba, Manu Katché, Laurent Voulzy and Ayọ, directly refers. In this unprecedented musical formula, West Indian Creole combines with rough, contemporary blues. In 2018, the musicians gave birth to their first album, Mo Jodi. This earned them the Prix de l'Académie Charles-Cros for best blues album of the year, and a nomination at the Victoires de la musique awards the same year. At the heart of the band's sound system, the dobro guitar is once again in the spotlight on their second album, 4:00 AM (2021), followed by the creation of new tracks for the soundtrack to Jimmy Laporal-Trésor's film, Les Rascals (2023). The trio then went on to work on their third album Promis le Ciel (2024), which reached number 142 in the French album chart.
