  • Description


    I'm Raphaël, musician (producer) and video maker, who want to renovate an old farm :) - I'm living here with my cat (Lia) and my dog (Aria). I want to create a music studio, a stage for concerts, and later festivals, having a cinema, organising yoga retreat. Dedicate one room for workshop (upcycling - Fermentation....) - I'm vegan, and trying to promote sustainability life.
    I love all kind of arts : from photography to contempory dance (favorite choreographer Chrystal Pite), music, cinema, theatre...
    My dream in the future is to create a community, dedicated to art, nature, animals...
    I recently complete a yoga teacher training in Berlin (hatha and yin)

    It s a bit old because of yoga teacher training but I ll start to produce again.
