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.”
