Delgres

  • Joshua Tree Music Festival 59700 Twentynine Palms Highway Yucca Valley, CA 92252-4134 United States (map)

Contemporary Creole Blues with an African Flair
From Guadeloupe to Louisiana…to the Mississippi Delta. The missing link of the Blues. Delgres, a 2018 Globalfest performer, makes music rooted in a historical moment: 1802, when slavery returned to Guadeloupe and some islanders escaped to New Orleans. It is from this perspective that Delgres—made up of Pascal Danaë (guitar and vocals), Rafgee (sousaphone), and Baptiste Brondy (drums and vocals)—revisits the blended songs, dances, and tears of the long-lost, drifting souls of New Orleans.
