Bernard Degavre, author, composer and performer from Brussels, releases his new album of 13 original songs.


Among the songs, we will mention among others:


  • "The European summits", a positive and smiling evocation of the city of Brussels and multicultural through the European summits.  


  • "The planet is beautiful", of which Bernard sings to us that "we should stop taking her for the ugliest starlets!"

  • "Swann and Barbara", a story of homeless youth who want to get out


  • "The power of men" which denounces autocratic powers even if the author tells us at the end of the song that "if necessary we will take it - this power - with our guitars"


  • "Au Tina's Café", where Tina invites visiting musicians to come and play on the stage of her bar which capsizes on the banks of the Gironde


  • "Rosa Parks" and her continuing struggle for civil rights in the USA


  • "Hope returns" shortly after the fall of the Wall Street bankers ... or the utopia of returning to the Woodstockian era ...


... We will let you discover the others  songs.
