About the project owner

Les Chats -Potes

Les Chats-Potés is a Franco-Brazilian duo.

On a trip to South America in 2013, Léa Goncalves accidentally arrived in Brazil. While taking a subway in Sao Paulo, she meets Ed Santos, a street and subway musician.
It is from this musical parenthesis that the artistic encounter will be born.

Léa moved into the musicians' roommate where Ed lived. And it was when he discovered that she
played the violin, that she will be integrated into the music group of which he was part as a violinist.
A duo takes shape, they are street and metro musicians, Les Chats-Potés are born, two violins with Gypsy and Celtic sounds and influences, very colourful.

Little by little the duo becomes a parallel project to the group and begins to evolve in a
independent. They create the E .P “MétrôFuge”.
After 8 months in Brazil, Léa must return to France.
The duo continues to evolve despite the distance and this allows for exploration and a different way of working.
Léa takes up the guitar and begins to write songs. A year later, Ed arrives in France.
They start from "zero" with their new project, music with folk accents, Indie-Folk under the new formation: Violin, Folk guitar / 12-string guitar, Cigar Box ...

After a second E.P "9567 km by bird's flight" in 2015, an album of 12 tracks "The days after tomorrow" was born in April 2018.
They perform at numerous concerts in France, Switzerland, Germany including a tour of Brazil in November 2019, as well as in the Parisian subway, and participate in festivals.

Why Les Chats-Potés?

It is in the streets of São Paulo that the identity of the duo is created, at the bend of a street, a hatter.
During the activity of street musicians the duo acquired two hats which very quickly became their sign of recognition.
The Chats-Potés are born!
