Hip Hop Jazz trio, SAX MACHINE is a return back to the future of “Great Black Music” : hard bop, afro beat, funk or hip hop collide into a new and unstoppable alloy. SAX MACHINE is an alchemical formula imagined by saxophonist & beatmaker Guillaume Sené (Like Jam, Leon Newars) and trombonist Pierre Dandin (Sergent Garcia, Malted Milk) that transforms the art of improvisation into a mesmerizing horns colored groove mixed and merged with loopers and machines.
From murals to music, from poetry to theater and film, from beats to rhymes; emcee, poet, keyboardist, video artist, and producer DAVU is a multidisciplinary artist constantly searching for new ways of expression. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to a musical family, DAVU was first introduced to music by his grandfather, who was a guitarist with the Isley Brothers for many years. His old school hip-hop flow and his poetic rhymes prove that mind can revive hip-hop.

Coming all the way from French Island of Reunion, TIAS introduces us to a catchy acoustic-pop world allied to a singular voice and sensitive and optimistic texts in French or Creole - a true reflection of the cultural mix of our time. Nestled between Tracy Chapman's pop-folk and the lyrics of French singer Francis Cabrel, following in the footsteps of Reunionese artists such as Alain Peters and Ziskakan, and inflamed by funky rhythms, it is in a fusion that TIAS delivers his sweet emotions. Its ultra-mixed universe unveiled, the barriers are lifted. Tias draws his way between the Indian Ocean and mainland France, from artistic residences to festivals nationals.
