Great Europeana review by Rootsworld.com (USA)

“Once these cats get their claws in your attention, it’s impossible to turn away. Their music is a contradiction, at once living in its own bubble and siphoning a global sound.”

Great review in Dutch music magazine MixedWorldMusic.com

Translated to English, the piece by Ronald Veerman would be something like this:

“If it weren’t for Jaune Toujours’ long and solid record of service, the band could still be accidentally associated with the ‘gilets jaunes’ movement because of the name. However, the Brussels collective has little to do with the cramped citizen protest, given the cheerful all-inclusive mentality that speaks from the music and the lyrics.

On Europeana – a word play on Americana – Jaune Toujours unambiguously opts for a connection between people, styles, languages ​​and rhythms: rather the slightly chaotic melting pot of a Europe in motion than the rigid black-and-white thinking of the rising nationalism.

Naturally, it helps that the group has grown musically into a particularly smooth-running machine that routinely switches between ska, street funk and Balkan jazz and thus offers a colorful frame for the enthusiastically chanted texts of Piet Maris.

It is easy to imagine how Jaune Toujours will serve the festival pastures with this energetic mixture in the coming season; and if (positive) activism is more your thing, Europeana is the right fanfare for every climate march in 2019.”

Thank you very much for your kind words Mr. Veerman.
