Buyu Ambroise & The Blues in Red Band
Alix Buyu Ambroise was born in Haiti in 1953. After a brief stay in the Republic of Congo where his father was employed as a professor for two years, he moved to the United States and has been living there for the last 35 years. Alix was drawn to the saxophone at a young age, experimenting with the instrument as early as age sixteen as a high school student in Brooklyn, New York, during the early 70’s, a fertile period for both Haitian music and American jazz.
