Last weekend (on saturday, 16.01.2011) a great Blues&Jazz Fusion event took place in Saint-Louis, Marie-Galante. It was hosted by Henri, in his cozy restaurant "Chez Henri" located on the beach...Sitting under the huge breadfruit tree and with toes in the sand we had the big pleasure to listen to several artists.
First the Jocelyn Menard Quartet opened the concert with lovely jazz music and put everyone in good mood. Then Gino Sitson from Cameroun presented his new album.
And last but not least the night arrived with the amazing voice of Roland Tchakounte, an African Blues-singer, accompanied by the great sounds of his guitarist...
The bar-restaurant "Chez Henri" is known and famous place for musical events in the French Caribbean. The house is actually the birth house of Henri, who restored it some years ago. When you have the chance to get there, dont miss to try his famous "omelette creole" too, together with one "´ti punch" of course....while looking at the sea, under the (above mentioned) bread-fruit tree:-)
