LES NÉGRESSES VERTES

This charismatic and boisterous group was formed in Paris’ working-classdistricts of the 80s, and went through the equestrian cabaret Zingaro, punkand gypsy music. These years gave birth to ‘Les Négresses Vertes’ who are still,to this day, one of our most iconic groups around the world. Having aparticular attachment to Great Britain since the start of their career due toWilliam Orbit’s remix of Zobi, the group have performed unforgettableconcerts in venues and festivals such as the famous Reading Festival.The tragic disappearance of singer Helno in 1993 marked a turning point in thegroup’s history. Nevertheless they bounced back and went on to produce newalbums, exploring different musical worlds and collaborating with the likes ofMassive Attack for the superb remix of ‘Face à la mer’ and Howie B for therenowned album ‘Trabendo’. They would continue to perform around theworld until their separation in 2001.Anyone who has been to their concerts still remember the highly energetic andcompassionate musical fusion experienced at their shows; and for everyoneelse we are pleased to announce: Les Négresses Vertes 2018 Tour–celebratingthe 30th anniversary of ‘MLAH’.
