CLUB DES BELUGAS
Club des Belugas is one of the leading Nujazz bands in Europe, perhaps in the world. They combine contemporary European Electro, Lounge & Nujazz Styles with Brazilian Beats, Swing and American
Black Soul of the fifties, sixties and seventies using their unique creativity and intensity.
They started in 2002 with the album “Caviar at 3 a.m.” Since then they released 10 studio albums, a 2CD live album, a live DVD, 10 singles and 1 EP.
Charts: In 2003 they climbed up to no.1 of the German Club Charts with the single “Hip Hip Chin Chin”.
Many number 1 chart positions for the albums "SWOP", "Forward" and "Fishing for Zebras" on Amazon's Triphop charts and Traditional Jazz charts. Obviously wrong genre classifications from Amazon, but nice to mention though :)
