Dazibao - E40 (2007 Belgium) @VBR-V0


A fresh and original quintet where music means pleasure. Dazibao amazes, breaks the rhythms, knows how to reinvent itself in a single song. Dazibao's music is hard to specify as it approaches a festive ‘euro-oriental' folk atmosphere. The successful fusion of Sophie Cavez and Jonathan de Neck diatonic accordions' intermixes emotions of an extraordinary journey.
Nacreous buttons and bellows create a dance universe and a voluble listening. At the centre of this acoustic universe experienced personalities evolve in already proven paths.

 The second release by this wonderful Belgian ensemble (now a quintet) will
 surely garner as much acclaim as their previous CD, Alma. The diatonic
 accordions of Sophie Cavez and Jonathan de Neck are still in the
 forefront, musically and compositionally, but this 2007 release offers a
 more confident ensemble sound, a little richer in jazz roots while still
 solidly enthralled the folk roots of their region. Exceptional music from
 an exceptional ensemble, once again.


Press from the record label:

 Dazibao's music is hard to specify as it approaches a festive
 'euro-oriental' folk atmosphere. The successful fusion of Sophie Cavez and
 Jonathan de Neck diatonic accordions' intermixes emotions of an
 extraordinary journey.

 Nacreous buttons and bellows create a dance universe and a voluble
 listening. At the centre of this acoustic universe experienced
 personalities evolve in already proven paths.

 This project has already been polished up (Dranouter folkfestival, Flagey,
 Euritmix, Festival de Saint-Chartier, Bozar, Festival d'art de Huy...)
 with Dazibao's first album 'Alma'. It was born from an encounter of the
 diatonic accordions crossbred with some Flamenco touches and eastern
 resonances with slight arabesques and impaired rhythms of the Balkans of
 Karim Baggili's guitar. All this sustained by the numerous percussions
 (darbouka, pandeiro, udu, cajon,...) of Jo Zanders.

 Dazibao is now presenting a brand new repertoire with the release of its
 second album 'E40'! With Emmanuel Baily at the electro-acoustic guitar and
 Vincent Noiret at the double bass. A fresh and original quintet where
 music means pleasure. Dazibao amazes, breaks the rhythms, knows how to
 reinvent itself in a single song. Diatonist seeds' to expose in the wind.
