The Blue Dahlia is a band led by musician Dahlia Dumont. Dumont has a way of weaving in sounds from France, the Caribbean, Mexico and Eastern European areas into this new CD called “La Tradition Américaine” (release: August 10, 2018). She moved back to Brooklyn after years of living in France. While living in Brooklyn, she was struggling with a new baby and her father’s illness and nursing school classes. But on walks by a global music club in Brooklyn called Barbès, she became inspired to try out some demos of her own--and “La Tradition Américaine” was born.
