Dam'nco is the new face of the French JAZZ POP scene.
The compositions, which borrow from different musical styles, are directly inspired by the atmospheres of the neighborhoods of Paris where the members of the band live. 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, created by the world known drummer Damien Schmitt, brings together five 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!
On March 2018 has been released the 2nd Album "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
