SUPERGOMBO is an exciting new offshoot of the cultural blend made in France. Their Afrofunk sound is probably coming from the Tout Puissant Orchestre Poly-Rythmo and the Headhunters, blended with influences such as Senegalese Mbalax, Congolese Soukous, Funk and Jazz. But you would never really think of their sound as "World music", although they do retain its frenzied, uncontrollable rhythm. SUPERGOMBO’s seven musicians also know how to slow

down and take their time. They borrow other influences from Bamako to Ouagadougou, with a stopover in la Guillotière, a lively Lyon neighborhood known for its own cultural mix.

SUPERGOMBO really wants to take us all on a trip and get us on the dance floor. From his father’s years in Africa, Etienne Kermarc inherited the West African sounds – which he blended

with his own jazz idiom. His fellow travelers are Aurélien Joly and Nacim Brahimi with their horns, Romain Nassini and Riad Klaï for the harmony, David Doris from Reunion Island and

Wendlavim Zabsonré from Burkina Faso on percussions and drums – all of them involved in the writing and arrangements.

Finally, the indie label Z Production joined in, with Vincent Taurelle, Etienne Meunier and Benoît Bel working on the recording. With references such as Tony Allen and Daft Punk, their message is clear – they’re gonna make you dance.
