Accustomed to international tours and fed with multiple influences, The JOKE expands its errorist crossover. Some would say "International Citizens", others would call them "Witness of an era", the Parisian combo overcomes labels to deliver a music all on edge.

Basically funk and rock'n'roll in the soul, soukous, Afrobeat, hip-hop, ragga pass also through the mill of this band. Their message is concerned, and even appalled ... but never moralistic.

As if Africa and Balkans would met in a parisian cellar. A collective experience that leaves an enriching trace.

Welcome to Extralife.

Lavoblaster Remix

Dubamix and The Joke have united their forces on this common project. Willing to combine the party and the struggle, Dubamix has remixed The Joke's album "Lavoblaster (2014)", see below. Between the dub and electronic culture of Dubamix, and The Joke's live music, the multiple sounds cross and collide in this clearly danceable album. It aims at opening the dancefloor where the social struggle should meet a refreshing party. As we say, if "your revolution does not dance, don't invite me to your revolution".

This album has been recorded during a tour in Burkina Faso in 2013. Slowly, the local modern and traditional musics have infused within Joke's creations, to give birth to this atypical but esthetically pleasing fusion. In this album, you will experience the finest Ouagadougou's rappers (D-Oud, Busta gaeenga, Valian, Art Melody), some renowned Burkinabé musicians (Victor Deme, Issouf Diabaté, Bebey Bissongo), without forgetting other feats, such as Dubamix (France), Dubioza Kolektiv (Bosnia) and Djmawi Africa (Algeria).

Le facteur humain

Le facteur humain

The first real disc of the bend, came out in 2001, after few laborious cassettes.
This disc starts to be really old and it's no more available (sold out). If it does not look like our current music, it's quite funny to listen to.
