75 DOLLAR BILL (New York / Blues mauritanien vs underground américain)
Rick Brown (run on) percussions
Che Chen guitares 6 et 12 cordes
Formé en 2012 à New York, 75 dollar bill développe une musique singulière allant puiser ses sources au travers le monde, de la guitare mauritanienne au minimalisme brut en passant par un blues urbain.
“Chen has developed a kind of intuitive approach to Saharan guitar, playing a conventional electric guitar and another with frets adapted to play quartertones. The style he creates in doing so is all his own: fierce art-punk meets dirty blues meets African trance. Together the pair create a low-budget instrumental-music hoedown of unalloyed beauty and power, as heard on this year’s album Wooden Bag (Other Music) as well as a handful of great self-released tapes—they actually busked in their early days and have retained that portability and in-the-red fury.” – The Chicago Reader
