About de nous

de nous is building bridges worthy to be heard. The band with the singer Pe Bess transform jazz standards and French chansons mixed with the sounds of cello and accordion, flavoured with own compositions and a dash of "savoir vivre". To put together extremes is an integral part of the de nous program:

jazz et java – cool sound sympathizes with French waltz rhythms

Saint Germain et Vienne – the flair of the Parisian arrondissement meets the dark charm of the city on the Danube

nostalgique et hip – modern combined with classic

chanson et Macédoine – French "savoir vivre" is playing with hilarity from the Balkans

Afrique et violoncelle – posh classic-ethno

Gipsy musette à la bulgare – simply sophisticated

Musicians from different nations form the band, founded in 2003. Their common music is a synthesis, shaped by the history and the individual influences of each of the members. The music bow bends far. Jazz, funk, chanson, pop and ethno: the refined polychromatic image cannot be strictly categorised.

The singer Pe Bess, in personality and look an authentic Parisian, has a dark, sensual voice and a magical presence on stage.
Whoever has seen and heard this keeps a lasting impression. Come and see yourself: you will understand de nous no matter which language you speak.
