Delgres Mo Jodi Limited 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set

Delgres are a trio hailing from the Leeward Islands, more specifically Guadeloupe and are pleased to announce details of their new album Mo Jodi. Fronted by Pascal Danae and complemented by drummer Baptiste Brondy and sousaphone player Rafgee, they loosely describe themselves as a blues trio. Traversing a myriad of sounds and influences they meld their own route via their cultural, historical and emotional roots - the missing link between French, Caribbean and US musical culture - that arrives amidst Ali Farka, Creole and the Black Keys to create their own exhilarating brand of bluesy, garage-rock. Inspired by and from where they take their name - the influential figure of Louis Delgres who was instrumental in the fight against colonial slavery looms large on the album - title track, Mo Jodi (I'll Die Today) is a tribute to his fight. Anchored in history, the resultant album is a brilliant representation of their own personal journey, the music both in broader terms and closer to home is a portrayal of rootlessness, struggles and exasperation that exists still to this day just on another page. An absorbing musical adventure, emotive and powerful, Mo Jodi revels in its instrumentation to provide an invigorating collection of songs that is a wonderful entry into the world of Delgres.
