Hip-Hop was life for 9-years-old Frank. From head spins to terrible attempts of rap, from horrible graffiti sketches to a few years of capoeira, he'd eventually found a lot of joy in skateboarding.
Due to physical and mental issues he'd lost all his sponsors and failed to become a professional skateboarder. That was when he decided to fully live in music. Influenced by skateboard movie's soundtracks, his fathers afro-percussion and his lovely bandmates that come from various backgrounds he keeps walking into the ambivalently loving arms of the world.
Frank produces a multilingual mix of song nurtured by many different kinds of music from all over the globe. Lead by his kind of poetic way of being, he's taking his all on stage with much devotion and an intention to linger on.
„laisser faire", made him tour all around Switzerland, with a stop at Gurten Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, bits of England and France. He's opened shows for fellow swiss musician Faber on his Tour through Germany and Austria, he supported Sophie Hunger, Midnight Oil and Jamie Lidell right before Flohzirkus EP was released in Januar 2018.
He briefly lived in Paris, where he worked on new music and played in several Parisian burger restaurants and pubs right before, the now 27 years old Swiss-Angolan artist has set up his new mattress at his old friends in Zürich Switzerland. "Juheminee", his latest album, came out on vinyl and on a skateboard.
