Meddy Gerville-Citizens of the World Series
Arriving from France for a U.S. tour Meddy Gerville is a world music star.
Pianist,composer,singer, Meddy is an exotic gem. Gerville's soaring haunting vocals evoke Milton Naschimento and Al Jarreau.
Meddy was born in St. Pierre-the largest city in southern Reunion Island-in 1974, and each step in his musical journey has led him towards his unique fusion of Jazz and Maloya, characterized by rhythms of his native island played on various homegrown instruments including 'rouler,' 'kayanm' and 'ravan' drums, all of which help account for his astonishing originality.
