Ar Ker performance for Jazz Connective Lyon

Ker is a regional prefix originally meaning fortified place, fortified castle, citadel, then village and finally inhabited place.

He likes to type very much. He listens to rock and other relatively strong things. He is 1m83 tall (according to his identity card). From there, he throws himself wildly on his drums in the service of all kinds of music: rock, song, improvised music and jazz with always an animal and singular approach of the drums. He also studies Indian, Ethiopian and Reunionese traditions. Founder of the label Carton Records.

We find him in projects representative of a certain French underground such as IRèNE, OK, Linnake, Le Bruit du [sign], W.A.C, L’Homme Avion by Vincent Courtois, Tilt. For several years, he has also been questioning the place of the body in music and collaborating with theater (Sylvain Maurice, Mickael Serre, Pierre Tallaron…), contemporary dance (Cie Empty) and circus (Sylvain Julien Iopido).


Chromb performance for Jazz Connective Lyon

CHROMB! makes guitar-free rock (or distortion jazz) for emotional adults and wild children. Padded, wild and subtle chamber music. After releasing three albums in 2012, 2014 and 2016 (illustrated by Benjamin Flao) CHROMB! is valiantly trying to conquer the world through recitals given in France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Burkina Faso… some of them opening for more or less international stars (Deerhunter, Young Marble Giants, The Oscillations, Magma, ONJ, Steve MacKay…), and others in festivals as prestigious as it is frightening (Dancity Festival, Riddim Collision, À Vaulx Jazz, Jazz à Ouaga, Rock in Opposition, Jazz à Luz…).
