They have different backgrounds, Louis studied flamenco music and Serge classical, Brazilian and jazz music. With their group 'Claxoneros' they have recorded the album 'Habibti'
The group was dissolved in 2016, but Louis, now living in Denmark, and Serge continued to visit each other, still making music and experimenting on new material where they often look for simplicity.
For this evening they will be again together to bring us new and old sounds.
