Lizzy Mercier Descloux

Zulu Rock


One place Descloux had never visited was the pop charts, but that changed when "Mais Ou Sont Passees Les Gazelles? (Where Have The Gazelles Gone?)" - a reworking of a South African Shangaan disco hit - went all the way to the top spot in her native France, giving her a platform and a profile in the land she'd fled many years before. Recorded at Satbel Studios in Johannesburg, the album followed what her mentor Michel Esteban describes as "an extraordinary adventure" through eastern Africa following the footsteps of 19th century poet Rimbaud through Sudan, Ethiopia, the East Coast.
