Melissa Laveaux + Delgres
This event has passed

Atrium 360°

For this soulful double-bill filled with creole spirit, singer-songwriter and guitarist Mélissa Laveaux will fill the Atrium with her sunny, melody-driven music at the intersection of folk, indie pop, electro, and blues. Born in Canada to Haitian parents and now based in France, her critically acclaimed new album, Radio Siwèl, explores her creole ancestry as well as Haiti’s history and folklore. Haitian kompa guitar, calypso, and soca add a definitive—and delectable—Caribbean twist to her sophisticated roots music and masterful storytelling.

 

For the second part of the evening, Delgres, a French trio with Caribbean roots that travels the old route between Guadaloupe and New Orleans, takes the stage. Led by guitarist and vocalist Pascal Danae who has performed alongside artists like Harry Belafonte, Neneh Cherry, Peter Gabriel, Gilberto Gil, Youssou N' Dour, and Ayo, Delgres gets people moving with their intoxicating blend of creole music, West African rhythms, rock, and Delta blues.

 

Presented in collaboration with The Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Bureau Export, and the France Rocks Festival
