Guem


"Guem is a phenomenal African percussionist who came to France when he was 16 to become a professional football player. Instead of this he introduced his crazy African rhythmical patterns to the European avant garde jazz scene of the 70's (Michel Portal, Steve Lacy...). He also released 7 solo albums mostly on French ethnic musIc label La Chant Du Monde. During his career which started 25 years ago he has been experimenting with all types of rhythms and sounds.

He also released 7 solo albums mostly on French ethnic musIc label La Chant Du Monde. During his career which started 25 years ago he has been experimenting with all types of rhythms and sounds.

For example he recorded an album in Brazil in 82 with local percussionists (available on vinyl LP). It would be meaningless to award him best percussionist of the world, but he is certainly one of the most creative ones. It is pointless to insist on his technical abilities: Guem's great talent is his melodic / compositor approach of percussions. Some of his compositions have been widely used in TV Ad spots in France! Due to his knowledge of all types of percussions and rhythms (his dad is Nigerian and mom is Algerian) he does very rich arrangements and compositions.

On stage he plays his compositions with 7 other percussionist, 2 female dancers and 2 male breakdancers." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
