Kora Music

Cette pièce est la première que j'ai écrite pour la kora, en 1986. J'ai tourné ce film en 2007.

L'île d'Yeu se situe au large de la Vendée, dans l'Océan Atlantique : un port, des routes et des sentiers à travers la lande et la bruyère, des pierres très anciennes cachées par les hautes herbes (mégalithes, pierres à cupules).

L'Oiseau Bleu est une sculpture de Dominique Fournier, qui fut également mon premier maître de kora.

Ballad of the island of Yeu.
This is the first piece I wrote for the kora, in 1986. The film was shot in 2007.

The island of Yeu is a French island on the Atlantic Ocean, with a little harbour and peaceful paths across the moor, and here and there you see megaliths and mysterious rocks hidden in the grass.

The Blue Bird is a sculpture by French artist Dominique Fournier, who also happened to be my first kora master.
