When Napoleon Bonaparte reinstated slavery on the Caribbean Island of Guadeloupe in 1802, many people fled or were exiled to New Orleans following a slave rebellion led by the legendary Louis Delgrès. Named after this historic leader, Delgres—made up of Paris-born, Caribbean-descended frontman Pascal Danaë on dobro and vocals, sousaphone player Rafgee, and drummer Baptiste Brondy—revisit the songs, dances, and sorrows of the long-lost, drifting souls of New Orleans through their bluesy Caribbean roots music.

Discover Delgres' bluesy Caribbean roots music for their Los Angeles Debut on August 10th at the Skirball Center and arrive early to listen to a DJ set by dublab’s Rani de Leon!
