French trio Delgres are known for their bluesy rock and Creole lyrics which they have toured extensively around France and the US. They were inspired by the little-known historical figure Louis Delgres, who fought back against Napoleon's reinstitution of slavery in the French West Indies in 1802. Delgres frontman Pascal Danaë joins Marjorie Hache in the studio to discuss their second album 4:00 AM and how he draws on the personal, the historical and what's happening right now.
