Don’t ask me why I’ve always been in love with nylon guitars, strings, winds… That’s why I will produce an album with you without programming, without sounds from the 80s and other synthesizers…
There will only be acoustic instruments! Guitars, accordion, cello, bass, drums, percussion, kayamn’
Highly skilled musicians accustomed to playing together, they bring to the songs all the density, warmth, groove, and melancholy of the lyrics 😉
Initially a pianist, Olivier is a prodigy… As a musician, he has been traveling the world for 23 years: Morocco, USA, Cuba, Colombia, Algeria, Nigeria, Czech Republic, Cameroon… He also holds multiple degrees and is a recognized ethnomusicologist, although his humility may not reveal it. His musicality is heart-wrenching, and his accordion can either provide rhythmic accompaniment or tear at your heartstrings.
