What happened since the last post? Between wandering, touring, festivals and projects, I am slowly getting my bearings in France and finally the borders are opening artistically after these difficult recent years.
Road trip in the south & GUTS Pura Vida!
September 2023, first road trip to the south of France. I stop at my friend Olivier's, a lifelong friend with whom we decided to create an atypical duo between classical and jazz, improvised music. Moreover, with the code " GIVECARE " you can find out a little more about my current projects by clicking here: https://www. goctaworldbeats.com/fr/pro-access
A stop at the magnificent campsite of Gabitou received by Muriel and all her group of friends. It deserves to be mentioned, because the rest with a view of the river was saving.
A stop to visit Flow , big sister of soul and source of inspiration, a nice touch of friendship with Romain and Marco, lifelong friends and I set off to see Guts and his whole gang.So yes, I built up the suspense, but I won't even be able to reveal what happened because the mystery of this big meeting must remain secret. A festival like I've never experienced, incredible artists, a timeless place far from the coast.
I can only quickly say that the invitation was incredible as well as the moment spent. I can also say that Guts is an artist who doesn't fit into any box, as easy to catch as a fish. He creates a world of kindness around his artists that is sorely lacking among people in the profession. A big thank you to you for this unique experience!
Tour with Aja Monet:
I then flew to the Netherlands to play with Aja Monet and its musicians. A leap into the unknown for me and for everyone, because if his pianist Javier accompanied, Aja had taken the risk of setting up a team of musicians per country. I was able to meet fantastic musicians in Rotterdam and Amsterdam and play my first Youtube Livestreaming click here
Vocals: Aja monet
Piano: Javier Santiago
Trumpet: Peter Somuah
Drums: Niek de Bruijn
Percussion: Vernon Chatlein
Double bass: Ildo Nandja
This was followed by a concert in perfect harmony in Amsterdam and a high-flying performance in London with a new team of superb musicians.
