Reggae and independent music activists since 2001, Danakil have been travelling the roads of the world for over 15 years, delivering hundreds of hot lives that are a major part of the group’s success.
After 4 studio albums, 2 lives, and 2 albums “DUB” the band has lost none of its strength, its desire, and returns with a new raw stripping project. Called « La Rue Raisonne », this fifth opus brings the group to the front of the militant francophone and engaged scene. The first single « 32 Mars » was also a song composed on the sidelines of the concerts organized by the group and their entourage in support of the Night Stand movement.
Musically, the group never ceased to evolve, trusting the beatmakers « house » to muscle its productions. The result is a new generation roots reggae, well anchored in the tune of time, with mixed music, sincere humanism and the desire to say things as they come, to make a different voice heard.
Particular attention was also paid to the mixing of the album in a 100% analog studio, allowing the musicians to deliver a full-bodied, heavy bass album with a real depth of sound.
As for collaborations, Danakil again chose to indulge themselves by inviting the cream of the reggae and world scene. The German singer Patrice is thus present on the track list by sharing with Balik (singer of Danakil) the title « Paris la nuit », a night life tribute to the Parisian capital. Danakil invites a sacred team of singers on the « World of Reggae Music » a declaration of love to the musical style that relies all participants: Anthony B, Flavia Coelho, Nattali Rize, Josh The Skints, Brahim, Volodia, Yaniss Odua , Natty Jean and U-Roy
Produced, distributed and published by their Baco Records label, founded by the members of the band in 2012, which is also a significant development, this new project is an example of French self-production !
After finishing almost all the rooms visited during the first phase of the tour in the autumn of 2016 (which ended with a complete double Parisian TRIANON on both evenings, broadcasted live on social networks) , The band gets on the roads of France and elsewhere, in the spring, to continue communicating, its militant word, in music !
