Eric Delbouys

Towards the end of the 70s, Eric goes wild for drums and percussions. Influenced by John Bonham, he totally opens up his drumming to other musical forms. In 1993, he meets Bernard Lubat who introduces him to jazz and improvisation and, at the same time, he joins Bernard Sandoval’s flamenco quintet. In Lyon, in 1996, under the influence of turkish, maghreb and african communities, he moves on to musics of the word. In 2000, he tries electronic music and mixes his acoustic experiences with the world of samplers; this will lead to several original pieces. In 2004, he launches his solo show Mr Gronde. He writes music for choreographers such as Christian Canciani of la compagnie ‘Ccandance’, Winship Boyd, la compagnie ‘Itchy Feet’, Laurence Roy, Corinne Damien. He is named music director (and provides the musical accompaniement) in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, for the parade of the Biennale de la danse de Lyon with the cities of Vaulx-en-Velin, Ste-Foy-les-Lyon, and the neighbourhood of de la Duchère. After traveling with the Quelques fiers mongols group, formed by 6 barbarians inspired by Led Zeppelin, and with punk/funk lyrical group Un mec une porte, Eric carries out his rock adventure with the Doctor Hell group, and plays blues with the Jacques Bon duet.
