I started playing drums at 6 and I studied with a teacher in a local small school for 2 years.I continued on my own. I was rocked by the blues/Gospel and rock music in my youth. I discovered other music styles when I entered the music school “M.A.I” : jazz, metal, jungle, fusion. In July 2005, I left the MAI, qualified and found a real passion for playing on stage and sharing music among bands ! From that moment, I’ve been working on interpretation, I’ve tried to develope my own musical style through gigs and studio experiences. I wanted to be part of Weend’ô to enable me to express my deep feelings with large musical ambiances and offer more than s aimple rhythmic set of 3’30 !
