FRANCAIS

Deux mots suffisent à résumer sa manière de voir la musique et la vie : Voyage et Groove.


C'est le groove qui le pousse à organiser des parties depuis 2003, en solo ou collectifs, ou encore avec ses 8 acolytes pour la cation du HOLY GROOVE FESTIVAL et en tant que programmateur musical pour le JAZZONZE+ FESTIVAL. Et c'est le voyage qui l'a amené dans les 4 coins du monde à la recherche de Black Music.

Grâce à ces deux passions il a mixé en Suisse, France, Belgique, Portugal, Liban...avec des djs comme KON, Format, Voodoo Funk, Hugo Mendez, Nik Weston,...et des artistes comme Maceo Parker, Prince, Sharon Jones, Hocus Pocus, ou encore Femi Kuti...

Aujourd'hui ses invités, djs et bands, sont toujours choisis en fonction de ces 2 passions, pour faire voyager et groover sur le dancefloor les aficionados de ses soirées intitulées KOFFI & THE GANG !!

Take care of your Soul...

ENGLISH

I started the djing in 2002. Since always highly placed in the sounds of Black music, and deeply sensitive to the typical groove of Funk, I created and participated as of 2003 in many parties in Lausanne.

In 2007, I co-founded the Djs group “A Soul Tribe” that became one of the spearheads in the Soul-Funk party organization in the French part of Switzerland, until 2013. Afterwards I launched the Koffi & The Gang party, but also founded with nine acolytes the “Association Lausanne Funk” (ALF) which lead to the first Funk & Soul Festival in Switzerland, the Holy Groove Festival, whose first edition took place October 3 to 6, 2013 in Lausanne.


I like to offer a wide range of musical styles for lovers of ¨Black music , always with a touch of groove , moving from Funk to Jazz, Soul to Afro beat ... And it is on this basis that were born the Koffi & The Gang parties. My style has already gived me the chance to mix throughout Switzerland, but also in France, Portugal and Belgium... The opportunity was also given to work with festivals such as the Montreux Jazz, the Cully Jazz, the Jazz 11 + and Caprices, both in organization and as Dj.

Finaly, my
 
hyper activity helped me to find myself alongside with many great artists such as DJs Format, Voodoo Funk, Vadim, Hugo Mendez and do warm ups and after shows of bands  as Maceo Parker, Femi Kuti, Alice Russell, Hocus Pocus, Ben L'Oncle Soul...

Take care of your Soul...
