Combining airy jazz that takes flight with folk and Caribbean grooves, Dyas is the solar fusion of two music friends exploring songs and improvisation. A dialogue driven by Joséphine Chloé’s crystalline voice, the subtle sound of the handpan, mesmerizing electronic effects and the soft power of Eric Delblond’s bass lines. A dialogue distinguished by tenderness and authenticity. Their shared love of jazz and their personal influences meet and create a captivating universe of original compositions and unique covers.
Their debut EP “She’s Watching” was released in October 2018. At the 2019 “Crest Jazz Vocal” competition, Dyas took second place in the audience award and received a special recognition from the jury.
French born and Berlin-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Joséphine Chloé is remarkable in her singular and enveloping voice, as well as for her handpan, an instrument that continues to expand her universe. In 2018, she won the Andrée Chedid (Spring of Poets) grand prize. She performed in numerous renowned venues in Europe as well as as an opening act for artists such as Julien Doré or Arthur H.
Bassist, composer, arranger, native of Guadeloupe, Eric Delblond exemplifies groove, on stage and in the studio. He accompanies and records with many artists from the Caribbean, European and international scenes, including Imany, Alain Jean-Marie, Rachelle Ferrell, Dominik Coco, Akiyo, Leedyah Barlagne, Meemee Nelzy, Tanya St-Val, Victor O, E.sy Kennenga, Lizz McComb or Maggie Blanchard.
