‘Xiame Dégas & Tropa’ is a world orchestra with strong roots in the Afro Brazilian musical universe. The energy and joy of life is honestly expressed through the original compositions that move through melancholic melodies and poetic lyrics, based on rhythmic and harmonic diversity.
With musicians who go by the names Agbedoglo, Degas, La Cour Bravo, Pedersen and Summer it is clear to see that here we a great cross cultural collaboration.
"With Tropa I have found the perfect team that can express the thoughts, ideas and feelings behind my compositions," says Xiame Degas, who grew up in an extended family where music and creativity has been a natural focal point for the family's identity.
The music is at the same time catchy, recognizable and surprisingly innovative. "Xiame Degas & Tropa" represents both the Brazilian grassroots as well as the sophistication of the modern world and jazz music.
