Born in Port au Prince Haiti, Amos Coulanges studied guitar in France under Javier Quevedo at Ecole Normale de Musique. Coulanges also studied musicology at Sorbonne in France. Cuban artist Leo Brouwer expressed of Amos’s music: “The music of Amos Coulanges is truly representative of his Haitian culture – fresh as a landscape, direct as a trait of the ‘Creole’ youth, but at the same time equally complex…how can you combine so many diverse things into one? This can only be done in our Caribbean islands. Thus the music of Amos Coulanges.” I, myself, had the privilege to meeting this great musician while studying in Paris, and I am very proud to introduce some of his music to audiences all over the world.
