Artist informations

Featuring Jonathan and Éloi Painchaud, Kevin McIntyre, George Belliveau and Jean-François Breau, Salebarbes is the perfect fit for tying the lines of the past to those of the present. Released on April 26, 2019, by L-A be, Live au Pas Perdus is a musical journey through Acadia and Louisiana in which French melodies, groove and joy are celebrated. Salebarbes combines the untamed and festive energy of the Cajun tradition with a touch of humour and hope: the hope and desire of restoring a little pride and to celebrate in French, like a cultural reclaiming, a reversed deportation in reverse. There is something of an urge to sing, preferably in harmony, this crumbling now. Our culture that can barely be remembered, our language’s journey. A ship that sways like a bottle in the open sea, carrying a single message: we are still alive!
