The 8eme Groupe is composed of 6 musicians with different influences and backgrounds, and Pascal Duquenne is perhaps the most famous of them. The 8th Group composes its own pop/rock songs with various sounds, in English and in French, and their original personalities merge in the music and harmony is created so as to not know who is who … they think, support and advance together. In concert, their fire, energy and humor make their “difference” an original and touching project.
Each member involved in the project is part of the non profit organization “The 8th Day” which allows people with mental disabilities (mild to moderate intellectual disability) to live independently while being supported by an educational team. To achieve this, the organization provides 30 apartments in 4 houses in an ordinary environment. The important thing is to develop social support mechanisms for residents and help them to make personal choices that guide their life course.
Artists like Alice on the Roof, Saule and Grandgeorge support this beautiful project and invest in sharing the creation and development of this musical adventure. Others will probably not be late to join them, the doors of the rehearsal room are open.
They will soon enter the studio to record 4 tracks, including a single for radio single set for release in March 2018.
