Bio


Live act par excellence, the Shaolin Temple Defenders have been burning down venues with each appearance for almost ten years. Between raw Funk and sweet Soul, their music is deeply inspired by 60's and 70's Rhythm & Blues but their sound is definitely rooted in the spirit of our times.
This is best shown by their new album, 'From The Inside', which discloses a more modern and more personal aspect of their musical world.


After touring many times around Europe and in Canada, recording four studio albums and one live album with Martha High, James Brown's background vocalist, the Shaolin Temple Defenders have now become the french representative of the new international Soul scene. This explosive groove machine doggedly works to satisfy its audience. Being in control, the inexhaustible Brother Lion gives himself heart and soul at every show and thus delivers genuine performances. His musicians, being now past masters at the art of groove, accompany him with an unconditional fervour.
Get ready for an emotional roller-coaster and let yourself be overwhelmed by this infectious fever that will definitely lead you to the dancefloor!
