Rocked in the cradle of a resolutely Mediterranean culture, Pierre ‘Kamlo’ Barré borrows from the universal nomadic music-language of Andalusia, the Arabs and Hungarian or Romany gypsies. This world-music record, carried by the rare finesse of Barré’s guitar, is a tribute to the itinerant lifestyle of those open to others.
The art of Kamlo has something of the nature of this form of creativity: his guitar is an extension of his voice and conversation, his history, with all its joys and suffering, his own itinerary. His guitar—precisely—adopts by turns the accents of the Saracens’ mandola, the chitarra battente of the Italians, the lutes of the Moors and, of course, the guitars of Tziganes and Romany gypsies. The spirit of ‘La Chope des Puces’, the temple of gypsy-jazz in Clignancourt – Kamlo learned his letters there – undeniably breathes through the man’s playing. He carries the flag high in bearing all those principles which might be summarized in words like heart, sound, elegance and pride.
