Les hurlements d' Léo is a human adventure which has travelled the world :Eastern Europe, Germany, Hungary, Russia, Japan, Australia, USA, Canada.

Their music is a mixture of Java, acoustic rock and Eastern European sounds and is played on various instruments. On stage the guitar, violin, accordio, double bass, trombone, drums, trumpet, saxophone and piano join together for a most enjoyable sound.

It all started in 1995 in Bordeaux. The "Hurlements" began their musical career in the city's bars which they really enjoyed animating.
In 1999 they produced the album "Café des Jours Heureux" themselves. With this first opus they managed to impose their style throughout the Festival scene but most of all they managed to impose their name.

During a whole year they built up their experience on stage before releasing a new album : "La Belle Affaire". This second opus carried on where the first one left off with realistic and poetic texts inspired by the little things in day-to-day life. "Le Café des Jours Heureux" for example, describes life in their part of town and we are introduced to Louise the accordionist who is "The little man in grey". The words are cheerful and accompanied by Java music.

As the band particularly enjoys the human side of things and sharing experiences, they have no hesitation in investing in parallel projects. One of these key projects brought together in one family, two bands with the same values : the "HDL" and the "Ogres de Barback". To celebrate this union, both bands recorded a live album under the "Latcho Drom" tent in September 2001. The recipe for this explosive cocktail is a mixture of songs from each band and cover versions of all kinds performed on the French and European stages.

In October 2003, the release of a new album "Ouest Terne" was a good opportunity to set off on a tour throughout France. The songs were still as varied and energetic with the rock and Java undertones they revealed in the previous albums. The texts were more elaborate but the "HDL"'s spontaneity was still there.

In 2004, they recorded a live album of 6 tracks called "Hardcore Troubadours" with the group "17 Hippies". They then toured energetically for 3 months including an appearance at the "Francofolies" in La Rochelle. In 2005, they released a live album from the "Ouest Terne" tour with their favourite songs.

Travelling is part of the "HDL" way of life. They started in 2000 with the African continent and no less than 5 countries : Gabon, Cameroon, Congo, Tchad and Equatorial Guinea. This month-long experience gave them a taste for crossing more borders.
They hit the road again with a week in Japan where they met a Russian group, "Tequila Jazz"! This meeting with the band from St Petersburg gave them the opportunity to tour Russia in July 2003. Since then both bands have been very close and this is how the "HDL" end up touring Russia at least once a year!

Australia is their furthest destination. They managed to make a name for themselves during their three tours in 2002, 2003 and 2004, and to take part in recording a compilation called "FRANCE" released in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Their music got an enthusiastic welcome which led them into bringing out a compilation of their best songs from "Le Café des Jours Heureux" and "La Belle Affaire". They also took part in 17 concerts including the W.O.M.A.D. in Adelaide.

The "HDL" have played in other countries : Canada (2001), all the East European countries, either on their own or with the "Un air de famille" tour; in Syria for 10 days followed by Beirut.
In September 2005 they recorded their latest album (the 6th) which is due out at the beginning of March 2006 when they will be starting a new tour of Germany, France, Australia and Russia.
