« Chaophonies » is the fruit of a collaboration between the Haitian poet, painter, novelist, playwright and actor Frankétienne and the Scottish musician Mark Mulholland combining spoken word and music.

Theatrical readings by Frankétienne of extracts from his book of poetry « Rapjazz, Journal d’un Paria » blend with original music composed and performed by Mark Mulholland. The first performance of the work was in Jacmel, Haiti, in March 2013, and the reactions to the initial performance encouraged the pair to work on a recorded version of the project, in which Frankétienne’s captivating and dramatic readings and occasional créole songs, are combined with settings drawn from different musical backgrounds – rock, blues, Celtic folk, musette…masterfully played by Mark Mulholland and the other musicians who appear on the album : Haitian percussionist Zikiki, Belgian double bassist Hannes d’Hoine and violinist Buni Lenski, French accordionist Olaf Hund and Scottish cellist Nicola Geddes.

«A compelling listen» Lonesome Highway, UK

«Expressive, flamboyant and hugely evocative» Americana UK

«Captivating, concise and coherent» Chocolate Hat, UK

«Captivating and entrancing, melodically spiritual» Monolith Cocktail

«The album is quite simply a jewel! Frankétienne’s voice is extremely supple, clear and powerful, and the music is really extraordinary, original and unexpected.» Julien Delmaire, writer and TV présenter, France
