Jo Kaiat

Born:

Born in Nice in 1960, Jo Kaiat devotes himself to music, a territory whose limits are only those that man wants to give himself. His odyssey begins with jazz but, very quickly, the swing proves to be not enough to express all that is inside in him. He then turned to Bela Bartok, Olivier Messiaen, Stravinsky and the Impressionists. He spent his teenage years crunching chords in search of a mystery. At 18, he went to Paris. He stays there for five years, playing with Steve Potts, Oliver Johnson, Jean Jaques Avenel, Georges Brown, Jean Yves Colson, Jef Sicard… then he returned to Nice where he continued his musical activities with Barney Wilen, Bibi Rovere, Jack Sewing… With Jo Kaiat it is about travelling but travelling in depth, it is every time to try to make the tour of something
