Today I'm in the mood to share some musical diamonds with you.
Most of us, when we speak of music of the FWI, think of Zouk.
In this topic, I wanna make you discover other styles.
Let me begin with a band which has been crowned "RĂ©vĂ©lation de l'annĂ©e" and "best album" at the PRIX SACEM, this year. The band's maestro, Fred Deshayes also won the price of the best composer for the song Krim kont la Gwadloup.
SOFT has become a phenomenon in the FWI and in Europe since 2 years.
SOFT is a quartet : a guitarist (Fred Deshayes), a percusionnist (Didier Juste), a bassit (J. Larochelle) and a saxophonist (P. Sadikalay).Their album "KADANS A PEYI LA" is a a symbiosis between traditionnal rythms like gwo ka, biguine, and jazz.
Before this success with SOFT, Fred Deshayes had already collaborated with great artists such as Dominque Coco with the hit song "Chimen an mwen". He also composed the songs for the movie "Dissidents" which deals with the story of Antillean who, during the World War II, left the country, illegaly, to help the Forces FranĂ§aises Libres.
