I want to help

Robert Falk

I was born in Paris but soon moved to Brussels.

I started to play folk-music, then jazz-rock before I got interested in computer-aided musical composition.

I played in several bands in the 80's such as 'Spring' (with (Michel Delory and François Garny), Falklands (with Alain Rochette and Sam Mc Kinney), etc.

A trip to Zaire in 1989 gave me the opportunity to get acquainted with African music.

I started to be active as a producer-arranger for various African artists a bit later. Up to now I have produced/directed/ played in 5 CDs.

Embowassa : Tuta Weza (1992)
Dominic Kakolobango : Habari Za Kwetu (1995)
Malick Pathé Sow & Welnere : Danniyanke (1998) , Diariyata (2002)
Pas Mal + : Chacun Pour Soi (2004)

The sixth Muzungu (January 2006) was the first under my name and features my afro-jazz compositions
