PATRIC - Montpellier - Occitania
Patric is a unique artist and one of the most famous singers in the Occitanian language, with a repertory mixing popular Occitanian songs and adaptations of famous foreign successes, with his own compositions.
When he started out, he sang with well-known French singers such as Georges Brassens, Barbara, Mouloudji, Nougaro, Duteil, Raimon, Lluis Llach, Pi de la Serra. And Tom Paxton recognized him as the deserving inheritor of the American protest singers.
The Occitanian singer Patric is a modern troubadour who crisscrosses the whole world with his songs, including in the biggest festivals. He sings in all the great European cities (London, Manchester, Southampon, Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Oslo, Bergen, Brussels, Namur, Charleroi, Liège, Heidelberg, Saarbrücken, Frankfurt, Cracow, Geneva, Barcelona…), in Africa (Abidjan, Bouaké, Bangui, Brazzaville….), and he continues to stride the planet. Patric’s songs have been translated and sung in numerous languages (English, Scandinavian languages, German). And the American singer Diane Jarvi has included one of his songs (“Ò ma bèla cigala”) in a recent recording.
Patric has little by little forged himself a faithful public, renewed continually, mixing generations, and attracting newcomers to our region, bringing together high-quality musicians from all horizons: jazz, traditional, rock, gypsy, popular, salsa, world music, etc.
In this way, he has varied styles, atmospheres, passing from acoustic to electric, from energetic to poetic, rearranging ancient songs and writing new ones.
In 2013 he will celebrate forty years of career, on stage and on records, so far with eighteen albums, two CDs, and a book of memories and thoughts.
Today is Esperanto’s turn with the release of the album Okcitanio interpreted by Patric in the Universal Language.
