Faygo is an English-speaking Reggae-Dub band from Rennes in Brittany composed of 6 musicians.
For the past 7 years, the group has been crisscrossing the roads of France to meet an ever-growing audience, delivering more than a hundred livesincandescent.
Faygois a call to share, open-mindedness and travel and revisits the genre with fresh eyes.
Loving Reggae Roots and Dub, and as much influenced by Groundation, The Gladiators, and more generally Jamaican trios from the 70's, as by more modern bands such as Katchafire, Fat Freddy's Drop or Sebastian Sturm, Faygo distills hints of jazz, Afrobeat, blues, and funk into his reggae. So many styles that have built each of the band members.
Musikalisch pflegen Faygo stellenweise das, was Bands wie Steel Pulse, Stick Figure, Slightly Stoopid, Third World und andere als rockigen Reggae seit Jahrzehnten formulieren. Nur klingen sie rhythmisch besonders elastisch, spritziger als manche US-Kollegen.
Musically the musicians of the band, enhanced by a great sounding four-piece horn section, deliver a well arranged sophisticated roots reggae sound that sounds very pleasant to the ears.
Faygo offre un véritable moment d’évasion avec des textes percutants qui résonnent sur un skank puissant. Le groupe laisse apprécier la précision et la finesse de ses instrus : un reggae tout simplement hypnotisant qui fait mouche
For this second volume of the album BLOOMING, also composed of 4 tracks and 4 dubs, Faygo blossoms a little more and reveals new facets through three different pens. With always for objective to incorporate the widened range of musical influences of each member of the group.
The collective compositions, carried by the various authors, also endeavor to preserve the harmony, continuity and overall consistency with the first opus. The copper section and the choirs are also renewed to preserve this coherence in the musical color of the whole.
On substance, the guideline of this BLOOMING is without any doubt the commitment for a return to the essential, by questioning us on what is good for humanity while acting to preserve our environment and our planet. Themes that are dear to the values of Reggae, which are unfortunately still relevant and which, more than ever, need to be reaffirmed.
The tour in Thailand in the spring of 2020 will once again be anchored in BLOOMING #2 with the participation of Masia One. The band met twice with this Singaporean artist with hip-hop / reggae / dub influences during their Thai tour. Since these meetings, a regular exchange was set up and allowed the production of various collaborative pieces.
