Dam'nco is a perfect reflection of what 21st century French multiculturalism is all about. It's colorful music, that makes you want to sing and dance, punctuated with explosive improvisations. Dam'nco brings together six of the best French musicians of today, who play a definitely modern, forward-looking brand of jazz, with that very special little extra: the famous FRENCH TOUCH!

FRANKIE CHAVEZ

in cooperation with Musicastrada

European booking

Except Spain, Portugal, Holland

 
Frankie Chavez’s music, surfer and rocker from Lisbon (Portugal),  is a mix between different types of sounds, reflecting all the musical influences he encountered while traveling the world. The result is a kind of Blues/Folk, with atmospheres ranging from clean to rough or psychedelic. Though it’s easy to recognize different musical influences it’s hard to define his music in a single word.
But we can say for sure that it sounds like rock, folk, blues and surf with a portuguese soul
FRANKIE CHAVEZ is an artist with whom everyone is in agreement, everybody speaks well about him, even the reviewers. He fascinates the audience during his perfomance, without being catalogued or labelled

THE STEADY SWAGGER

ONLY for ITALY

in collaborazione con Area Rebus

 

Line up: Pi Sailin Cutler - chitarra/voce
              Mat "Chewy" Lacombe - contrabbasso/voce
              Sergio D'isanto - batteria


Prendete la voce ringhiante di un vichingo fiero, il fascino di un narratore esperto, il drammatico fascino di un boscaiolo e l'energia febbrile di un marinaio, aggiungere questi ingredienti in una botte per la fermentazione e il risultato finale è lo stile degli Steady Swagger, in due parole "Whiskey Billie"; robusto, carismatico e aggressivamente divertente. E 'folk rock che intreccia senza sforzo i suoni del punk gitano, il jazz, i ritmi di valzer, tonalità minori edificanti e hip-hop, il tutto mantenendo un suono unitario coerente.
La costante Swagger è un power trio originario di Montreal. I loro spettacoli dal vivo sono diventati progressivamente un'esperienza energetica condivisa tra gli artisti e il pubblico. La loro musica è esplosiva come polvere da sparo!

SODAJ

in cooperation with Musicastrada

 

European booking

 

Emblematic of the new generation of artists who have taken up the torch of burning Maloya, Native of Reunion Saodaj’ place their crystal clear voice and the impetuous ternary islander rhythm in the great concert of globalized music.

Nourished by Southern, West Africa and European influences, this young traveller quintet puzzling by the maturity of their acoustic fusion, both faithful to their history and ancestors and definitely open to hybridizations.

Carried by the charismatic singer Marie LANFROY, this nomadic Maloya proves to be much more than a musical promise by its soaring vocals and its vertiginous trance, Saodaj’ revives a genre of ecstatic virtues.

Saodaj’s rhythms and melodies make people dance as in a state of hypnotic trance.

Best WORLD Music BAND 2015 @ Voix de l’Océan Indien
Finalist @ “PRIX DES MUSIQUES DE L’OCÉAN INDIEN” 2015
