Chris Combette has given the Caribbean islands & Guianas musical scene some of its most sophisticated recordings. The delicate balance of his influences (bossa nova, reggae, calypso, mazurka...) mingle into an original style, illustrated through two earlier albums, "Plein Sud" and "Salambô" which brought him a wide gratefull. His last album, "La danse de Flore" is a tribute to his country, French Guiana. After travelling through the world, teaching mathematics for a few years and working with great musicians of the Caribbean, he is back in the place of his birth, to which he dedicates the title track. A troubadour at heart, he wrote and sang all the songs, sometimes at great pains (La danse de Flore), sometimes easily (like the beautiful ballad "Soledad", the story of a little girl with an alcoholic father), but always with his distinctive feeling of kindness and sensitivity. Chris Combette is now achieving his new album, rather accoustic, but still full of his mixed vibrations.
