Frankétienne & Mark Mulholland – Chaophonies


Full CD

Chaophonies is the fruit of a collaboration between the Haitian poet, painter, novelist, playwright and actor Frankétienne and the Scottish musician Mark Mulholland combining spoken word and music.


Theatrical readings by Frankétienne of extracts from his book of poetry /Rapjazz, Journal d/un Paria/ blend with original music composed and performed by Mark Mulholland. The first performance of the work was in Jacmel, Haiti, in March 2013, and the reactions to the initial performance encouraged the pair to work on a recorded version of the project.
