Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Deep Africa (2013)
Think Baka Beyond fronted by Peter Gabriel doing electronic music incorporating field recordings of indigenous music
Own, some co-written
When it comes to stylish electronica, French duos have risen to the top. Deep Forest works the ethno-techno World Beat angle. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Another grooving album. Crank the bass and dance to these pygmies. The frenchmen who put this one together did a pretty good job, although I think they didn't let the pygmies sing for themselves quite enough and spent too much time stringing samples together. A nice ambient dance album nonetheless. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Márta Sebestyéen (3, 6, 9)
Eric Mouquet, Michel Sanchez
I like it much more than their first, but I doubt it will do as well. Less danceable, more accordions, but some great vocals by Márta Sebestyén. Being heralded as "Deep Forest go to Transylvania". (email@example.com)
