DANAKIL

DANAKIL

Reggae and independent music activists since 2001, DANAKIL have been travelling the roads of all over the world for over 18 years, delivering hundreds of hot lives which are big part of the band’s success.

After their last album « LA RUE RAISONNE » (Baco Records / Baco Distribution), released October 2016, they were on tour during two years, proving that the band didn’t lost none of its strength and desire. They have played as headliners in the biggest french reggae events : at Reggae Sun Ska and No Logo, and also at Festival du Bout du Monde, Montjoux Festival, Festival du Chien à Plumes, Fête de L’Huma of Paris, Live in Tignes

And on the international stages, they have played at Abi Reggae Festival which is the biggest festival of 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 also went in Canada in autumn 2017 to present this new album with many shows in Québec.

They also sold out a lot of venues in the entire France, included the Trianon in Paris, which was sold out two evenings in a row for the release of the album.

Musically, the band never stopped to evolve, trusting the in-house beatmakers to strengthen its productions. The result is a new generation of 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. A particular attention was also paid to the album’s mix 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 chosen to make themselves enjoy by inviting the cream of the world reggae scene: Patrice, Anthony B, Flavia Coelho, Nattali Rize, Josh from The Skints, Brahim, Volodia, Yaniss Odua, Natty Jean and U-Roy !

In parallel, the band still manage a lot of projects: a third dub album named DANAKIL MEETS ONDUBGROUND released November 2017. A very nice mix job operated by the ONDUBGROUND collective which remixes « LA RUE RAISONNE » and gives to this important album a new dimension, mixing trap music, dub and dubstep, very appreciated by Télérama magazine which awarded its famous four keys to the album. It shows once again Danakil talent and creativity, still eager for new experiences to share.

Then the singer NATTY JEAN released his solo album « I MAGINE » (October 2018). A sound tale between France and Sénégal, mixing urban and afro roots sonorities. To listen as soon as possible !

BALIK is also preparing a first solo album, the released is planned for the end of 2019. In this opus, he will explore more his love for rap and hip-hop music, included via surprise collaborations !

Finally, the entire band is still active as it used to, working on a very expected future album !

NEW SINGLE : DANAKIL X GABTY – EST-CE QUE C’EST NORMAL ?

While waiting for DANAKIL to go back to work on a new album, the group went to search the bottom of its drawers and found a title composed a few years ago when BALIK, singer of the band, lived in Bamako. We find him here alongside GABTY, Ivorian singer based in Bamako, and evolving around the group of artists affiliated to the HUMBLE ARK studio of the famous producer and multi-instrumentalist: MANJUL.
