Super Parquet. Literally, "great wooden floor". It’s not the name of a DIY store but of a band from Auvergne, an unlikely meeting between four guys from backgrounds in traditional regional music and electronica, two worlds that seem to have nothing in common.
Defining their style is not easy, but letting yourself go when they play live definitely is. Their gigs lie midway between a village fair and a rave party, a colourful mixture blending traditional sounds with electronic ones. Bagpipes, the banjo and unidentified local instruments flirt with synthetic machine sounds, and their relationship seems as natural and harmonious as can be.
