Album Notes
It all started in 1998 with a chance meeting between Doba and Caracol
( Doriane Faberg and Carole Facal) during a wild rave party. The
connection and chemistry between them was immediate. So began a great
adventure where their vocal and percussive talents came together to
create their own unique musical style and groove. Initially, as a
duo, they performed traditional songs and chants from various
countries, harvesting and perfecting their various musical and
cultural backgrounds.

Five years later, the two founding members of DobaCaracol surrounded
themselves with four exceptionally talented musicians to render songs
with subtle and original styles and arrangements reflecting their
diverse musical and cultural influences. This highly colourful and
tasteful mixture of French and foreign language lends itself
beautifully to the music, creating an alliance of organic and modern

With the release of an independent record in 2001 ( Le calme son),
DobaCaracol participated in various major international festivals
alongside such artists as:Alpha Blondy, Tryo, La Rue Kétanou and many
more. They gained further experience and noteriety as back up singers
with several international artists that allowed them to trot the
globe and pursue their quest of musical and cultural exploration in
far away areas such as Egypt, the Seychelles Islands, South Africa,
Europe and the United States.

In 2004 DobaCaracol sign a recording contract with Montreal's hottest
independent label, Indica Records for their second album, ''Soley''.
With renown arranger/producer Francois Lalonde ( Lhasa, Jean Leloup)
at the helm, they have released a mature and sensitive masterpiece
that leaves no one indifferent..

"...they literally bewitch even the most apathetic...a mixture of earth
and air, textured atmospheres with a strong feminine touch;
songwriting with African, reggae and modern influences that blend
together in a completely original manner. (Yves Bernard, Journal
Ici, Montreal)

""...two Quebec music queens...two mermaid voices, at times soft and
sensual, at times frantic and frenzied. A real treat for the ears...
(Journal Sud Ouest, Larochelle, France)

""...a tribal sensuality emanates from their blend of songs and chants,
the same as their trance-dance body motions...These incomparable
percussionists, a musical Siamese pair, incarnate ultimate
gracefulness!...absolute genies with their bedevilled percussions..."
Serge Beyer, Longeur d'Ondes (France)


to write a review


Dobacaracols' mixture of french, english, raggae and tribal is pure magic! I'm hooked for life and I look forward to anything they come up with in the future.


A Pearl!!
I heard "Etrange3" on FIP Radio in France and got curious...The rest of the album is so good!
Thank you for sharing with us your world...I wish I had met you in a rave party also...
Keep sharing your good vibes!!!!

I adore the French language and thanks to MySpace Music, I was lead to DobaCaracol. For a few weeks straight, Soley was in my "Top 5." Oh, and I also bought my father a copy shortly after. :-)
