Julien Desprez & Abacaxi

In the organizer's words:

Somewhere between noise, funk rock (sometimes with a hint of reggaeton) and sound art, ABACAXI (Portuguese for pineapple) has a sweet heart and a skin of spines.
The remarkable new power trio Abacaxi has developed an excitingly fresh sound around the idiosyncratic guitarist Julien Desprez. Elements of abstraction, snarling noise and prog mingled with the guitarist's gymnastic, dance-like maneuvers on a series of floor pedals, including on-stage lighting control. (...) Abacaxi is one of the most exciting, genre-bending and multi-sensory new ensembles out there. (Josef Woodard, DownBeat)

Formed by Julien Desprez, this brand new incarnation of the classic rock guitar/bass/drums lineup presents an intense electric sound sculpture informed by the rock idiom.

The trio creates a high-energy new music full of loud brightness and sharp edges - complemented by a choreography of flashing lights.

ABACAXI made a big impression on their European debut at the 2019 Berlin Jazz Festival. The first release Mainstream desire followed in March 2021 (Carton / Coax records)
