Musician, ukulele apasionado, music teacher
Guitarist at first, I fell in love with a tiny soprano ukulele 15 years ago. And the deep satisfaction and big inner smile are still there when I play this little four strings instrument.
When my teaching time is over, I play my banjolele and ukulele in a funny band, 3 gars dans l’jardin. I use it for a kid show, Charivari dans le boui-boui. And, yes, I still use my electric guitar in a afro/soul/rock band, Mangrove.
I love calypso, afro-beat, jazz, hip-hop, folk music, Moondog, reggae, ska, jugbands and early blues, tropicalia, soul funk and disco, Nina Simone, the drums mastery of James Gadson and Al Jackson, Serge Gainsbourg, Fats Waller, Carlos Garden and so on and on….
I also love taking in illustration and graphism books, read, bike, movies, cooking and the smell of fresh basil on my fingers.
