DobaCaracol

afro-beat // world // dub

Inspired by traditional African music and hypnotic tribal chants, Quebec natives Doriane Fabreg (Doba) and Carole Facal (Caracol) entwine the ethnic rhythms and modern grooves into a moving sound-journey. As the duo blends a variety of styles with a mixture of French, English and occasional African dialects, DobaCaracol delivers unique and organic arrangements. The standout percussion driven DobaCaracol’s tracks “Étrange” and “Baiser Salé” carry the earthy, warm vibe of afro-beat, dynamic Manu Chao-like nuances and a certain funky, relaxed attitude.

Catchy vocal harmonies and a vibrant quality of sound.

    Fantastic music from these duo because they can sign song in any language.

  3. Jim :

    I can’t help but feel like the caliber of these recommnedations are sharply declining. I just want to cast in a vote for more (ideally only) Paul Irish posts.

  4. smarties :

    Sadly, they recently announced that they are splitting :-(

  5. Noe :

    Their vocal sound reminds me of Les Nubians, sans the soul/funk.
