Mario Canonge

Welcome on Mario Canonge‘s website. On the music scene for a several decades, this remarkable jazzman has become a key figure in the realm of jazz. Not only recognized for his talent but for his compositions as well. As a leader, he has written some of the most beautiful pieces of Caribbean music of the last decades before deciding to follow a more “Jazzistic” path with Rhizome. This orientation was confirmed first with Mitan, released in 2011, then with a particularly rich year 2018. At the beginning of the year, Quint’up, co-lead with his long-time accomplice Michel Zenino, agreed with all the critics. And in November, Mario will present Zouk Out, his jazz review of the contribution of zouk to Caribbean musical culture.
