Stéphane Laidet - ESPAGNE
Stephane Laidet was born into a small family with a lot of musicians. He left his curiosity and chance guide him to different music styles: Latin music, bolero, son montuno, Colombian vallenato, African music, Chicago electric blues, funk, soul, hip-hop, the waltz. This led him first to the Caribbean, and now he has been living in Spain for more than 20 years. The Spanish coast, through flamenco, was particularly inspiring for him.
During the 90's, he was, among others, harmonicist of the Spanish group Color Humano and the French group Bønana.
During ten years, he produced and programmed computer music as an artistic producer in studio and on stage. Then, for 14 years, he has been working as an actor, musician, composer and creator of soundscapes for the "Teatro de los Sentidos", an immersive theater in which the viewer saw the story as an experience.
Today, he prepares a disc of music including different styles that interest him a lot. Accompanied by double bass, classical guitar, flamenco, violins, a bass harmonica, harmonica chords and Yonberg diatonic harmonicas, the music will transport you to his world.
For him: "the diatonic harmonica hides unsuspected territories. This tiny instrument is experiencing a moment of great revolution, a bit like a map on which we discover spaces in white, virgin lands! It's exciting, it makes you want to go on a musical exploration trip and the harmonica is a good travel companion! "
Stéphane Laidet is a sensitive and versatile harmonicist, a musician who listens. His music, through his poetry, takes us to mysterious and surprising places.
