Biography

Dedale is a French folk band. The melody section consists of three stunning soloists, and they’re backed up by a rhythm section that’s there at the right times but never overpowering. On the album “No past”, their fourth, Dedale play exclusively their own compositions, but the traditional roots are clearly visible.This is an entirely instrumental recording, with the main instrumentation being the button box of Norbert Pignol, the whistles and recorders of Christophe Sacchettini, and the hurdy-gurdy of Isabelle Pignol. Actually, it’s easy to forget their nationality because this does not sound like French music is supposed to. It has similarities to La Bamboche at their best, and to Ti Jaz, but Dedale go further and faster. The tunes are nicely varied, with tracks from under a minute to nearly ten, some quite close to traditional French dance music, others more experimental. There’s a touch of bagpipe, a touch of dulcimer, a touch of clarinet, some nice slap bass, and just the right amount of keyboards and percussion.
