OKOU - CRASH DOWN

PRESENTED BY LAYLA ANNA-LEE

Okou was born from the encounter between singer/songwriter Tatiana Heintz and guitarist/composer Gilbert Trefzger in a Parisian bar.

Tatiana, from the Ivory Coast, spent most of her nomadic childhood and teenage years discovering new horizons from the West African continent to Europe. To then settle for a while in London, where she worked with various musicians such as Keziah Jones, Mick Jagger, Nuspirit Helsinki, The Five Corners Quintet, Shaun Escauffery, Jamie Lidell and more.

Gilbert, Swiss with Egyptian roots, is a diverse instrumentalist. He covers many styles of music, playing guitar, steelguitar, aoud and banjo. He has worked with artists such as Nitin Sawhney, Roy Ellis, Thomas D and many more. Gilbert has collaborated on movie soundtracks such as "Someone beside you" by Edgar Hagen, "Mein Fuehrer" by Dani Levy and also writes music for theatre.

Together, Tatiana and Gilbert are currently working on their first album, backed by Universal Publishing France. A folky, soulful breath of fresh air...
