Mathias 'Lena' Delplanque's adventure began in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), in 1973.
Rocked by the sounds of disco, reggae, zouk and Congolese rumba, he began his music studies (organ and piano) at a very young age. In an atypical way, his musical horizons open up radically: Tom Waits, Art of Noise, Public Enemy, Pierre Henry, Edgar Varèse, Stockhausen...
His first compositions were born out of tape recorders, using makeshift overdubbing.
Lena's second opus: strikes of melodies inherited from Scientist and Augustus Pablo spurt over more impressive rhythms (binary or wobbly). With the help of Black Sifichi and Tablloyd, assuming the roles of MCs, Lena has transformed into a hi-fi sound system.
At the crossroads of the various influences he has absorbed since his African childhood, Mathias Delplanque reinvents dub by crossing Lee Perry with Pole, giving life to a hybrid monster of sorts.
