After two studio albums well received by both public and media, hundreds of concerts all over France, Europe and even across the Atlantic, David Cairol has returned to the roots of his musical emotions in Jamaica... a place where a piece of his heart has always been.
It was indeed the organic beat of Reggae that led him one day to scribble his first verse, take up a guitar, begin to find his own voice, juggle some words that would set him on a journey.
His first concert was supporting ‘Idir’ at the ‘Fête de l’Humanité’. By word of mouth and through his live performances things moved on quickly.
A tour as the opening act for the famous french reggae band Sinsemilia, and then playing for the promotion of the movie “Marley” in over 60 French cinemas.
David also opened for Inna de yard, Ayo, Flavia Coelho, Winston McAnuff, Java, Danakil, Asa, Jehro, Souad Massi, The Original Wailers, Louis Bertignac, Amadou and Mariam, Vanupié, alongside appearances at festivals such as Jazz in Marciac, les Tempos du Monde, Jazz à Vienne, les Océaniques, Rock sur les Galets, the International Festival of Granby (Québec / Canada).
Roads that led him to many faces and lives from which in turn wonderful collaborations were born. From featurings for Papa Style & Baldas, Esne Beltza to writing texts for Fabien Duclerc and Root’System, his versatile and playful style, in both French and English, got him selected by the french star Francis Cabrel and his team as part of the Rencontres d’Astaffort 2017.
Hope Road 2020
‘Hope Road’ released on the birthday of Legendary Reggae Icon Bob Marley. This song along with others was performed on various stages between Kulture Walk in St. Elizabeth to the annual Dennis Brown concert in Kingston. His stellar performance at the latter led to him receiving live interviews and highlights by Irie FM, Winifred Williams for Onstage TV and RETV. His performance can be seen on the Onstage TV Youtube Channel.
