About the Program
Discover the musical descendants of Louis Delgrès—the nineteenth-century leader of a slave rebellion against Napoleon Bonaparte. Born in a Parisian suburb to Caribbean parents, frontman Pascal Danaë—who has performed with Harry Belafonte, Peter Gabriel, Gilberto Gil, and Youssou N’ Dour—founded Delgres with drummer Baptiste Brondy and sousaphone player Rafgee. The trio’s bluesy Caribbean roots music evokes the long-lost, drifting souls of New Orleans.
