A cultural explorer, I have been for twenty years leading creative projects with local communities on several continents. Based on their traditional heritage, this initiatives led to films, records, shows and conferences.

In 1998, I founded Altamira, an international cultural project combining anthropology and creative projects which took me into musical and human adventures in Asia and Africa but also in my town Saint-Denis. In 2014, I made my first film, PAYSANNE, which tells the natural and social ecosystem of a village in the highlands of Madagascar.

Through these projects, I have been exploring and highlighting the cultural treasure held by indigenous communities all over the world, as well as their remarkable social and ecological competence. With their artistic universe deeply connected to their natural environment and to their social life, they can provide us with promising ways of understanding human development.

My music works have been acclaimed by major french cultural magazines such as Télérama, Les Inrockuptibles, Mondomix, and were awarded by the prestigious Charles Cros Academy.

I share this exprience by giving talks in places such as the Quai Branly Museum, the National Museum for Asian Arts (Paris, France) or the University of the Philippines, and also as an instructor in managing sociocultural projects.

Cultural project manager, film-maker, music composer, public speaker : these collective projects led me to acquire various skills. And even more, a vision of man and the world.
