BROUSSAÏ - Reggae French Live Act in MACON

BROUSSAÏ Short Info

“Broussai is a well known name on the French reggae scene and the music press has declared that they are the most promising reggae group at present”. RFI Musique

The “Olympia” and Zénith in Paris, the “Francofolies” in Montreal, The SummerJam in Koln, The Dour Festival in Belgium, or “Reggae Month Festival” in Kingston, Broussai have demonstrated over the past ten years that they can set fire to any stage. Based on the incredible relationship they have established with their fans, journalists have de that Broussai is a real “live group”.

Considered as one of the most important French reggae formations, Broussai went to Jamaica in February 2012 to discover the birthplace of reggae music and to record their fourth album “Kingston Town” which was produced and engineered by Sam Clayton and Stephen Stewart at Harry J Studio in Kingston. The band had the pleasure of working with A-list musicians like Winston “Bopee” Bowen (guitar), Daniel “Axeman” Thompson (bass) and Uziah “Sticky” Thompson (percussion). The track “Live Up” features vocals by both David Hinds and Selwyn Brown of the legendary reggae group Steel Pulse. Ishmel McAnuff is featured on “Rebel Music and Bro. Sam Clayton, leader of the group Mystic Revelation of Rastafari features on the track “Africans”. Of note is also the performance of the group Dub Tonic Kru on the title track “Kingston Town”.

After more than 600 concert dates all over Europe, it was on a stage in Kingston, Jamaica that Broussai produced one of their most explosive live performances. This was a very important experience for the young musicians who despite the difference in language were able to offer something special and novel to the Jamaican public. Broussai became the first French group to be invited on Jamaican television when they appeared live on TVJ’s morning program “Smile Jamaica”.

Since the formation of the group ten years ago they have released three albums and a DVD of a live performance. Broussai continues to move ahead with a fourth opus and the strong urge to communicate energy, strength and hope as they seduce us again with conscious lyrics and dynamic instrumentals. “Kingston Town” with its roots vibrations sounds like a hymn to life.

Their two last album "Kingston Town" and "Perspectives" were declared "Best French Reggae Album of the year" in 2010 and 2013. (Victory of Reggae Music Awards - Reggae.fr)
