«I wish I could have been there: I can feel the excitement of a new era with a-changin’ that was born among leather couches, spirits and tobacco, intoxicated by the sound of his music.»
The early sixties mark a turning point in history. While war rages around the world, the youth starts to rally against the blind violence and oppression of an establishment it can no longer tolerate. The Beat Generation composed of a group of authors whose literature explores and influences American culture in the post-World War II era, finds its voice in Bob Dylan’s music. His bluesy melodies tinged with vitality, a rich and direct timbre, spread their message of freedom from the USA to Europe. Poet, writer and underground singer, he starts his career with amazing cafe performances. Back then cafes have become mythical meeting points where the younger generation come together to build a counter culture through music, poetry, politic, literature and fashion. A scent of revolution hangs in the air, saturated with tobacco, spirit and leather exuded from the couches where this rebel generation sits imagining a new order till the break of dawn.
For Beat Café, Dominique Ropion has played with a cuiry spicy that’s as warm as Bob Dylan’s music. In tribute to the cafes frequented by the Beat Generation, his melody is composed with top notes of cognac, black pepper and coriander, heart notes of tobacco and black leather and base notes of vetiver and cedar wood.
