Internationally renowned percussionist, creator of his own instruments and founder of the school Son et Rythme (“sound and rhythm”), teaching artistic expression through oral transmission – Pioneer and first developer of a new aesthetic that blends ancestral and contemporary acoustic characteristics, Jacky Craissac has left us a considerable artistic heritage : unique instruments created by him, a new music and writings, “sculptures of sounds” so successful acoustically that aesthetically. They testify to his genius, humanistic and traversal approach, to his philanthropy and artist being.


Extract from his illustrated lecture about his school of artistic expression through oral transmission “Son et Rythme”  :
“The origin of my work is my birth, my heritage and my path through life. It is the sound and the worship of my ancestors. This, within the lifetime that has been given me.
Music is the dance of sound in space.
Art expresses emotion, without fear or doubt; it is the repetitive expression of sound and rhythm. Nature is a creation of art. Creation is birth. Birth is liberty.
Sacred art is colour. Roots, liberty, passion, the soul of the nomad.”
