What is Dam'nco?
Dam’nco is a musical project which particularly means a lot to me because for the first time of my career I founded my own group of modern jazz.
I had the opportunity to learn about the diverse musical influences, by accompanying the biggest
(Jean-Luc Ponty, Alain Caron, Frank Gambale, Bireli Lagrene, Sixun, Cheb Khaled)
For a long time it which drives me in the music, it is the communication. This universal language that is the music allows us to share beyond the languages, on one hand with the public and on the other hand with the musicians. I never limited myself in a single musical style, it is probably what what enriched my playing over the years.
Dam'nco is a synthesis of all my musical influences. For this project I chose to surround myself with big artists:
- Michel Alibo (Bass)
- Yann Négrit (Guitar)
- Michael Lecoq (Keyboards)
- Fred Dupont (Keyboards / Talk box)
- Stephane Édouard (Percussions)

From Paris with Love
The first album of dam'nco will be entitled 'From Paris with love'.
During the last 10 years, I played in more than 50 countries. In the contact of people of any horizons, I was often able to notice that the French culture enjoys a particular aura worldwide.
This little something that you like calling French Touch.
The dam'nco project has for ambition to make this identity shining around the globe.
The album 'From Paris with love', will be out at the beginning of 2016.
The recording will be a particular moment and the opportunity for a couples of you to see the first step of the project dam'nco.
Indeed, the recording of the album will be in public - (35 people on evening - 3 evenings at the studio Parc 92 - Villeneuve la Garenne))
The public present during the recording as well as all the musicians will see putting back(handing) an audio headset. There will be no system of distribution(broadcasting) by high speaker.
Better still, the sessions will be filmed. The end product will be a CD / DVD.
The video being integral part of this project, there will be never audio recording without video recording. The used techniques and the intentions of shots will be also modern as the jazz of the project dam'nco
