They brings together world rhythms and moody cinematic moments playing blues and dance pieces, with notable influences from Congolese Soukous, African highlife, Ethiopian jazz, cumbia, whiff of Middle-East and Turkish Psychedelia.
”No one really knows who or what Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant are exactly.
Channeling an extraordinarily uplifting and utterly joyous concoction of Cumbia, Latin rhythm, Afro-Cuban guitars, and Arabic-flavoured organ, everyone in the audience tonight stops trying to fathom exactly what’s happening and just starts dancing. If you get the chance do go and see Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant, go. There are few bands who have the ability to illicit such an immediate sense of merry revelry.”
