René Lacaille is the master of the rhythms of l'Île de la Réunion, a volcanic island paradise located deep in the southwestern Indian Ocean.
As early as age seven, he learned how to garner audience attention when he accompanied his father to perform at weddings and dances throughout the island's many towns. This type of learning was rigorous training because the musicians had to be versatile and capable of playing the different types of music and a mix of songs. In result, René's talent and curiosity led him to master the bongos, drums, accordion, guitar, and saxophone as well as learning new music styles like flamenco, salsa, twist, rock, jazz, and fusion.
René Lacaille is featured in “Tantas Tierras” Song Around The World.
