Les Ogres de Barback

Les Ogres de Barback, 4 poly-instrumentalist musicians from the same family, deliver realistic songs, with gypsy and musette accents on a layer of alternative rock. Les Ogres have a taste for experiments and a gargantuan appetite, 5 records, one album Les hurlements d'Léo, a nomadic circus big top (Latcho Drom), a record for kids, a collaboration with Pierre Perret, a label. These born-performers live their music far from the way marked paths of today's variété. To them, independence has nothing to do with circumstances but is a way of living : they are in charge of everything, records production, tour organisation and even distribution. Their words, tinted with poetry, brassed up like a permanent funfair soundtrack, take us to humorously realistic stories with committed refrains. A familial and musical tale that is not done yet seducing us.
