Since their successful last album LA RUE RAISONNE (Baco Records / Baco Distribution, October 2016) DANAKIL’s members are offering an exciting show thanks to the talented and charismatic Balik and Natty singers, the dynamism and complicity of the 10 musicians and a very qualitative light and set. This is how DANAKIL full up all stages crossed in 2017.
On the summer festivals DANAKIL confirmed his headlined status playing on the most important stages like Reggae Sun Ska Festival or No Logo in France. And on the international ones like Abi Reggae Festival which is the biggest in Africa, or Summerjam in Germany where the show had been recorded and played on the national TV WDR and where the band played for the 5th time in 8 years! They went in Canada too to present this new album with many shows in Québec. People want to see them, and opportunities are here so DANAKIL is following the tour in 2018!
In parallel of the tour the band is still producing and creating. Last project is a third dub album named DANAKIL MEETS ONDUBGROUND released in November 2017. A very nice mix job operated by the ONDUBGROUND collective which had given to this important album a new dimension. An exclusive opus mixing trap music dub and dubstep. Besides the big names we can find on the LA RUE RAISONNE album like ANTHONY B, FLAVIA COELHO, U-ROY, NATTALI RIZE, JOSH THE SKINTS’ singer, BRAHIM, VOLODIA, YANISS ODUA, and NATTY JEAN more MC are called to take the mic! MC JAMALSKI, the « fast style » precursor, SR WILSON the Spanish toaster, MISCELLANEOUS from CHILL BUMP or representatives of the BRIGANTE RECORDS label like ADAM PARIS, JOSEPH COTTON and GREEN CROSS.
An amazing and bold fusion very appreciated by Télérama magazine which awarded its famous keys to the album. Un project which shows again how DANAKIL is creative and still searching for new experiences to share.
