Alain Peters – Complainte Pour Mon Defunt Papa (La Réunion, 1985, Village Titan)

Died in 1995 at the age of 43, Alain Peters, poet, musician, singer and melodist of genius native of Reunion was for a long time one of the best kept secrets of the Indian Ocean.

First in a band (“Les Caméléons”) and then alone, he crossed the 70s and 80s like a shooting star, drowning his spleen and demons in alcohol, leaving behind a handful of recordings including this tape, “Mangé Pou Le Cœur”.

Produced in very few copies at the time by the association “Village Titan”, and accompanied with a selection of a few of his poems, this one sums up in itself the beauty of the inestimable heritage – and unfortunately still too confidential – left by Peters, through ten Blues, Jazz, Sega and Maloya tracks merging in a great way Creole, African, Indian and European sounds.

For today, I decided to share with you “Complainte Pour Mon Defunt Papa“, my favorite track from this tape, a sublime melancholic instrumental Maloya Jazz track – Enjoy !
