His meeting with strings
Always with the aim of enriching his knowledge on gwoka he learned the technique of singing since 1998.
He was part of the Regional Choir directed by Tido DEJEAN, who gave a series of concerts in Guadeloupe in 2002, accompanied by the Havana Symphony Orchestra. He was a member of the "Friends of the Opera" who made Carmen of BIZET at the Center for Arts and Culture in 2006, where he played the role of the tavernier Lilla Pasta (baritone).
Since 8 years he is very interested in strings and composes for orchestra and choir. Thus Gino GRECO, head of the "Ensemble Instrumental Chevaliers Saint-Georges", asked him to compose a work for him. In 2007 he offers them a work entitled "Wobèwtin" written only for string orchestra. Given the success of this work, Gino ordered another, but this time for ka, chorus and orchestra. In 2008, they performed "Kouté kouté", with Franck ALPHONSE and Cyrille D'ALEXIS, at Ka, and himself as director. He had the joy of directing this work in churches of Nantes. Work that had great success.
From 2013 to 2015, at the request of Lydia JARDON, he composed three works inspired by gwoka, for the festival "Musician in Guadeloupe". In 2013: "Kouté", a Woulé for string quartet and ka, in 2014: "Jou-la-sa" a Menndé for wind quintet, steel-pan and ka and in 2015 a graj for marimba, steel-pan, strings and ka.
These works are purely inspired by gwoka and are accompanied by ka.
