Massilia Sound System

- 6 July 2022 - 22:00 /

We had missed them so much that we no longer dared to believe them. Yes, combative and smiling, engaged and funny, that's them. We don't often have the opportunity to come across groups like Massilia Sound System, who know how to speak to the intelligence as much as to speak to the heart, summon the imagination that unites and the reality that unites, make the feet dance and invite the hands to make. Because this reggae group is not primarily a matter of music. Towards the end of the 80s, it was a question of establishing in Marseille the brilliant invention of the Jamaican sound system: reggae instrumentals, large speakers and microphones for chatting. Always human, above, below, alongside, at the same time as the music.

Their new album confirms it: classic rub a dub, drum and bass accelerations, oriental scents, autotune of contemporary urban music... it's always Massilia Sound System, neighbor of the whole world and proudly rooted, who sings to you Sale Caractère le July 6 at 10 p.m. Chénier stage!
