“Music was not something I had ever planned on getting involved with, it just happened”. – Jean Baptiste Telie
In Africa knowledge is transferred through what is called ” Oral Tradition”. Telie has always thought of the Oral Tradition as an art and utilizes the form of communication to tell rhythmic stories in his new album.
