This show was inspirational for me. I had the pleasure of talking to musicians in France about their perspectives and stories with the healing power of music. Fa7 (Fabrice Mareau) and Ti Harmon had encouraging thoughts about how we can make this world a better place to live through music.
Fa7 is a musician and artist in France and travels extensively visiting Europe then Africa, making friends in passage with people of all social and geographical origins. His guitar and his song writing are his expression and vision for how to assist healing the world which encircles it.
His unique music is composed in nature, and varies depending on the landscapes. Tune into his CD “La Brise” to hear the sounds of the water in Guadeloupe, and the sounds of the stones in France. See if you can feel into where he composed it.
Always nomadic mind…learn more about Fa7, his music, and his world projects on MySpace/Fa7Music.
Ti (pronounced tai) Harmon is originally from Philadelphia. She began singing at the age of five, when she was the first to eagerly volunteer for the solo in her kindergarten Christmas concert. She has since honed her skills performing in New York, Madrid, and Paris. After completing her theatre studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, she founded Rize Theatre and Dance Company. She then moved to Madrid where she decided to focus on music.
She now calls upon the total of her experiences to find her unique musical universe: a sweet Jazz mixed with Soul, Folk, and Blues.
The band consists of Ti Harmon (Voice/Songwriter), Germain Guyot (Paino/Songwriter), Thomas Hugenel (Bass/Songwriter), Stephane Berti (Guitar), and Martin Wangermée (Drums). The group has been working together for over a year and combines styles and creative ideas to arrive at their distinct sound. The group debuted its project at the Fronteny Jazz Festival in August 2009.
