The powerful trio and the missing link between French, Caribbean and US cultures, otherwise known as the band Delgres, was formed by Pascal Danaë, Baptiste Brondy and Rafgee in 2015. That same year Delgres was awarded Best World Music Album at the Victoires de la musique (French “Grammy” awards). Born in a Parisian suburb to Caribbean parents, Pascal Danaë picked up his first guitar at age 15 beginning the journey of a globe-trotting musician. Delgres’ sound is soaked in blues. Though urban and open to the world, the band’s sound is somewhere between Ali Farka Toure, Tinariwen and the Black Keys. The band’s second album, Mo Jodi, was released in 2018.
