Three vids were posted by Tropiques Atrium, the main venue in Martinique (French West Indies). They show some of the work we conducted with more than two hundred music students and their teachers around Fort-de-France these past two years with long time associate guitarist Ralph Lavital.
The idea was to bring together young students that usually never meet due to the fact that they are from different schools, classes and ages. Ralph and I, we wrote a repertoire that is in part inspired by the musical heritage this island carries, one of great depth and value. We incorporated several melodic, harmonic and rhythmic elements of this long tradition into our writing and tried to mixed it with different styles, from originals to classics.
