Racism is the cancer of our world that is very difficult to eradicate. Nobody has asked to be born, neither as male or female, not as black, white, Asian characteristics or mixed blood.
My father was a Caribbean born black person, my mother was a European born white person.
Conclusion: I was born as a mestizo: the family's cappuccino. I am proud of my appearance.
As a toddler I received a toy piano which was the start of my musical career. At the age of seven I studied music which was also my childhood best friend. At a later age I played Frederic Chopin who is my favourite composer in terms of piano music. At the age of twelve I already composed simple pieces of music.
Is my music pop or rock music? No. The reason is that there is an oversupply for that genre. Since my great interest in peoples I compose, arrange and produce professional world, ethnic , relax music. The titles of my compositions speaks for themselves.
LOVE EVER - HURT NEVER
My quote is:
Music isn't just based on three chords.
It's a matter to finding the right ones.
Jean Marie Dorval
