STARS & STORIES @ PURPLE LOUNGE
A first name Manu, a name KATCHÉ. An artist known to all!
With a classical training at the Paris Conservatory of Music, Manu KATCHÉ was promised a noble career as a percussionist in a symphony orchestra. This is certainly where the “Katché sound” comes from, recognised by music lovers.
However, the artist turned away from classical music to jazz, his favourite playground, but also to pop-rock. Thanks to his talent, he shared the stage with many of the greatest French artists, such as Goldman, Souchon, Chedid, Catherine Lara or Michel Jonasz.
But it is finally Peter Gabriel and his album “So” that consecrates him for his exceptional drumming. This very particular sound of Manu’s drums gave him international legitimacy: Sting, Dire Straits, Tears for Fears, Paul Young, Simple Minds, Joe Satriani and many others, as many world-famous stars with whom he shares stage and studio.
He has received numerous awards and accolades in various countries and is recognised as an outstanding musician and songwriter. But it is only for you that Manu KATCHÉ will be at the PURPLE LOUNGE for an intimate and very enriching exchange. And who knows, you might even get a live demonstration of his talent…
An unmissable interview-meeting with this great name of the music scene!
