Pierre Chabrèle & Roots Heritage in the Bangkok Post

John Clewley talks about Pierre Chabrèle and Roots Heritage in his weekly world music column in the Bangkok Post, 15 May 2018.

Thanks, John.

… Pierre Chabrèle, whose trombone work can be heard in the shows and albums of many of Paris’ top musicians and bands, including Salif Keita. He has recently joined up with a group of like-minded senior musicians to form a new reggae-dub based band, Roots Heritage. The band has a recently-released debut album, Levelution, which was produced by the veteran London dub man Mad Professor, one of my favourite producers (along with Dennis Bovell) when I lived in South London during the 1980s. Chabrèle also has some interesting solo projects as well. Of particular note is a 2017 release with his original band Clan Destin, La Vie Mawe Crisis, which features some really great drumming from Cameroonian Brice Wassy. Both CDs are highly recommended and can be purchased on line at CD Baby.
