Hameau Du Pont; St. Martin, FWI; To entertain their neighborhood friends, teenage “musicians” Patou, Alex, Junie, and Pascal would come together to “play music”. With the backyard of Mr. and Mrs. Piper as their stage, these teenagers played their hearts out…on home-made instruments! Pots and pans for drums and bass, vocal sounds for keyboard, and a malfunctioning radio for guitar. A couple years later Ramon, of Ramon & the Family Brass, gave them the opportunity to use his band’s instruments to practice on during their rehearsals, in his band house. Since reggae was the easiest music genre to play, this is what they practiced, however listening to bands like the Creole Stars they ventured into zouk then soca music.
