Just learned that the musician and singer of the group Kassav', Jacob Desvarieux died in August of Covid. RIP, you will be missed by generations.
Coming from to Paris, he founded Kassav' as a studio band, looking for an all-caribbean sound. Kassav' became one of the very few bands how can sell out stadiums for days.

One (maybe the) of the last releases of Jacob feat. Admiral T.
