The Last Internationale (TLI) is an American rock band formed by New York City guitarist Edgey Pires and vocalist Delila Paz.
The group is known for its socially-conscious lyrics and strong live performances. Ben Hugues at Uber Rock says that “Live, they are an explosive ball of energy with perfect soulful vocals from Delila and rock ‘n’ roll chaos from the fingers of Edgey, a man who literally rips the strings from his guitar on a nightly basis.”
The duo started writing protest song and playing small gigs when Pires was studying for a degree in political science. He mentions Howlin’ Wolf, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Woody Guthrie among their musical influences.
