Jaune Toujours

Jaune Toujours (2013)

Like Brussels, Jaune Toujours is an explosive mix of cultures, languages and styles of music: rock, chanson, ska, gypsy, balkan or brassband, anything goes. Moreover, their intelligent and poetic lyrics translate a sincere social commitment.

Jaune Toujours music is best described as an explosive mix of cultures, languages and music genres. Add to that a typically Belgian pinch of self-derision and understatement and the result is a band that has the energy of a rock band, the improvising skills of a jazz combo, the open minded approach of world music group and the charm of a street band.

Well rooted in their home town Brussels, their unique identity is yet enforced by their poetic and socially committed lyrics, that celebrate the cultural melting pot of our modern day world. The kind of music you can dance to till you drop at a gig, but also enjoy as you listen more carefully at home.

Their lyrics in French - and occasionally in Dutch, Romanes, Italian and Spanish - are sophisticated and poetic, yet bold and strong in communicating the state of the world. jaune Toujours strive to speak for those who, too often, are not heard.
