Delgres - 4:00 AM [CD]
Catalogue No.: DISCO2002CD
Release Date: 23rd April 2021
French three-piece Delgres, who combine Guadeloupean heritage with New Orleans Creole and blues, present their latest album, ‘4:00 AM’.
Taking their name from Louis Delgrès, a major force in the fight against slavery in the French Caribbean, Delgres formed in 2016 when singer, songwriter and guitarist Pascal Danaë met drummer Baptiste Brondy and soubassophone player Rafgee.
Sung mostly in creole, their first album ‘Mo Jodi’ was released in August 2018 and received positive reviews globally, from the likes of the New York Times, Mojo and Uncut. They also performed for NPR’s World Café and The Blues Show with Cerys Matthews on BBC Radio 2. In 2019 the band were nominated for Best World Music Album at the French Victoires de La Musique.
Available on CD and coloured vinyl LP. (Once the coloured vinyl format sells out a standard black vinyl LP format will become available.)
