Dominique BĂ©rose, a Guadeloupian pianist, started as a drummer in the Basse-Terre orchestras before taking up keyboards at the end of the 1970s. After playing in the Fabiano Orchestra, he moved to Paris, played in clubs in the capital and accompanied many stars on the French scene, including David Koven and Bernard Lavilliers. Very eclectic, but often called upon for his professionalism, we find him alongside Babik Reinhardt, Papa Wemba and Michel Fugainâ€¦ With the 90s he made a return to Caribbean music, participated in Volt-Face, played with Beethova Obas, accompanied Edith Lefel at the Olympia without forgetting jazz. He records with David Dahan “Jack the Jazzman” for the Dreyfus label. On the African side, he plays with Africando, Manu Dibango, Monique SĂ©kaâ€¦ The list is long of the scenes he has frequented throughout the world, in Europe, Africa or Japan. From the early 2000s, he devoted himself to his personal project, with his wife, the singer Sonia Pinel-FĂ©rĂ©ol, which led in 2012 to the release of the album “Parcours”, celebrating thirty years of music. The album retraces the musical itinerary of Sonia and Dominique, to whom many guests, long-time friends, are invited. Among many others, Ralph Thamar, Beethova Obas, Jean-Paul Pognon, Luther FranĂ§oisâ€¦ Two concerts are organized at the Centre Culturel de Sonis aux Abymes (Guadeloupe) for the release of the album in November 2012 and the project is also presented on the stage of the Atrium in Martinique. The album allows Dominique to return to Martinique for the Biguine Jazz Festival, before being chosen as sponsor of the 2013 edition of the IloJazz festival in Pointe-Ă -Pitre, which is held in December. He plays there, accompanied by guitarist Lionel LouĂ©kĂ©, saxophonist Luther FranĂ§ois and Sonia Pinel-FĂ©rĂ©ol, opening for Rachelle Ferrell and Marcus Miller, who also invites him to share the stage with him. Since early 2014, Dominique BĂ©rose has been living in Paris again to pursue his career and is currently focusing on his trio project.
