To evaluate the scope of the adventure of SINSEMILIA, we could let the figures speak for themselves: more than 20 years of existence, more than one million of discs sold, more than 1000 live concerts; one title “TOUT LE BONHEUR DU MONDE”: the most broadcasted on the french radios during these 8 last years; 5 Olympia sold out… We could but it would be simplistic.
Built around the friendship of young teenagers, “Sinsé” is first of all a wonderful human success. How many groups of 10 musicians are still together 20 years after their creation with a team practically the same as the beginning? It’s certainly these ties that make the strength of SINSEMILIA. The pleasure they show on stage by being together is plain to be seen by everybody and extremely communicative. The smiles which arise on stage overcome quickly the audience; their sincerity even touches the most indifferent carrying away the crowd into the feast. Then, there is that music: such a special style! In fact, if SINSEMILIA has been for a long time one of the spearhead of the french reggae stage, if it was one of its forerunner, one of those who “opens the doors” with their opus “PREMIÈRE RÉCOLTE” (first crop) or “RESISTANCES”, it is also really an original group. Here, no Jamaican clichés, no pale imitation, a proper style where love of reggae is mixed with a real rock energy and with love of using peculiar words from the “chanson française”. And of course there are the concerts which have built this group as one of the most appreciated stage attractions in France. Here all is thought so that music can serve a true real show (and vice versa).The 10 musicians are never passive behind their instruments but full of energy, united in a show where the political commitment is present but blended with humour, in a show where we repeat in chorus this tunes which have marked a generation (like the famous “Mauvaise Réputation” of GEORGES BRASSENS) or “Douanier 007” or “Tout C’Qu’on A” : a moment where we dance, where we jump, and where we sometimes, wipe away a tear. After their last album “A L’ECHELLE D’UNE VIE” (April 2019), SINSEMILIA has done tons of shows. However, they find time to prepare their next album, planned for March 2021! Several videoclips are already out. This year will also mark their 30 years of career.
