Dam'nco | The Rise of a Paris Super Group
The group Dam'nco is the new face of French Pop Jazz. The compositions, which borrow different musical styles are inspired by the atmospheres of the neighborhoods of Paris where there are all members of the group. Dam’nco burst on the scene with a batch of slickly produced music videos to showcase their upcoming project. The video promotional strategy was super successful and Dam'co quickly, collectively built a social media following of tens of thousands of fans.

And, then there’s the music. Damn’co calls it “French Pop Jazz or “Jazz with The French Touch!” We call it fresh, exciting and awesome with three exclamation points !!! Today a lot of, let’s say, “popular jazz” or smooth jazz artists minimize or exclude altogether the quintessential element of Jazz, the most important thing that makes Jazz timeless and universal: Improvisation. And that’s where Damn’co shines brightest because everyone of these guys absolute “Kill” their solos as improvision has a prominent place in their arrangements. So for example, on tracks like “From Paris with Love,” or “Barbes” the music is fun, rhythmic, melodic and danceable but at the same time musically very sophisticated.
