Cissy Street: a perfect blend of jazz and funk from France
Cissy Street blasted into the French jazz-funk scene in 2017 with their first album full of entirely original compositions and they have been playing festivals ever since. Their new album 'La Tour du Pouvoir' (2020) is a perfect combination of jazz and funk that'll make you wanna shake what your mama gave ya!
“La Tour du Pouvoir” reinforces the band’s original identity whilst paying an obvious tribute to Tower of Power and other forefathers of jazz funk. With its motley crew of featuring artists, illustrious french funk singer as Juan Rozoff or unlikely guests such as the Fabulous Trobadors who play the Black Indians in French, or daringly integrating a Bourrée (French dance) from Auvergne amongst the funktastical grooves, this disk is not uniquely the result of a simple American affiliation, but a far more complex and authentic brew."
