"Riga Rhythms 2016"-Olainfarm Jazz Nights: Paris Combo

02 Jul
Paris Combo, set to perform at the festival, consists of a keyboard player and trumpetist from Australia, bass guitarist and drummer from France, and a French-Algerian guitarist. It goes without saying that each brings to the project their considerable experience in musicianship, but always with an innovative approach. Vocalist Belle DuBarry - the leader of the band - can boast of askew metaphors in her lyrics where alienation, sense of loss and passion are appropriately set in a cabaret under hot pink spotlights. The scene is completed and complemented with a film- noirish scent of expensive perfume, and a veil of blue cigarette smoke.
