Papillon is among the rare musicians in recent times to look at African musical instruments with an eye to redesign, combine and upgrade them for a new musical experience. He not only writes all of his own music — in several languages — but he designs and creates his own African instruments!
With his soaring voice and haunting melodies, coupled with a litany of African instruments, many of his own making, Papillon is a musical force to be reckoned with.
He has formed a group of versatile and diverse musicians, including an Indian Tabla drummer, a flutist, a pianist, Guitarist. This group will accompany Papillon on his quest to take back traditional music, much of which was lost during the colonization of Africa and other parts of the world, and his attempt to build a new musical dynasty on old African roots.
