Dowdelin explores as a tireless ever moving trailbazer a path where Creole jazz, electronic dancefloor sounds and Caribbean percussions come together to create a unique Future Kréol feeling. The Black Atlantic, title of an important work by Paul Gilroy, an English sociologist, states the theory that « there is a hybrid culture, which is neither African, nor American, nor Caribbean, nor British, but all that at the same time: the black Atlantic. » It is a world of cultural exchanges and incessant back and forth, where music is key/central. A universe of multiple and reciprocal borrowings that, aesthetically, sticks perfectly to Dowdelin, a Lyon-based trio exploring Afro-futurism in its Creolized form, plunging the traditions of the French West Indies into a great fountain of electronic youth glazed in jazz, in a way that few have so far.
