"We were booked to perform at this outdoor festival in Orleans and as we were about to depart from Paris, our percussionist still was nowhere to be found. We eventually had to travel without him, as we couldn’t afford to miss either our soundcheck or our performance.

Playing African Music without ANY percussion is considered to be sacrilegious by many, even a complete blasphemy to some (which I perfectly understand) and we weren’t that thrilled to perform without one of the key members of our musical unit being present.

Strangely enough, we wound up playing with more raw and bold energy than ever and this potentially lame show turned out to be one of our finest moments on (and off) stage.

This show was promoted and produced by Mr. Pierre Perrault and his ABCD organization (whom we hereby thank), and attended by probably the best and most enthusiastic crowd we have had the experience of playing for" - Franck Biyong, December 2017
