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 third album named Blooming 1, Faygo changes their angle of thinking and returns with an even more rootsy sound colored with world influences. The group also decides to incorporate the range of musical influences of each of its members.
Themes such as unity, sharing, philosophy, and altruism are a continuation of the first two releases. The tour in Thailand leaves an empirical legacy in the new creations: the cohesion of the band is at its peak, this feeling is omnipresent in the new songs and the immediate feeling.
The way of working differs this time by the integration of the brass section from the creation of the titles, as well as in the individual initiative in the proposals, which once adopted, are debated and enriched in the form of collective participation. Blooming 1 promises to be the opening of a trilogy that will make you appreciate the evolution of their blooming.
