While in my early teens, I studied jazz with renowned Haitian jazz saxophonist ThurgoTheodat from whom I quickly learned circular breathing technique that enhanced my skills on Haitian bamboo, tin horns (called vaksinn koné), didjeridoo.
Within a few short years of picking up the Shona Mbira, I exhibited such skill and mastery I caught the attention of Zimbabwe's greatest exponents the Shona mbira, Thomas Mapfumo and Stella Chiweshe with whom I performed and trained respectively. I have already established myself as an illustrious sideman and session musicians. To date I have performed with Grace Jones, Urban Tap, Emeline Michele, John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Jean-Paul Bourelly, Mozayik and Buyu Ambroise in addition to my core membership in Bonga & the Vodou Drums of Haiti. In 2000, I was invited to Japan with the Tet Kale Orchestra. I am a teaching artist with the non-profit organization Global Kids and I have been a featured accompanist with Pat Hall Dance, Urban Tap and Jean-Leon Destine.
