Sorry for my absence yesterday I was running around for TEDxPlainpalais. Yesterday was the big day and all of our Organizing Committee were really happy and proud on how it went and very thankful for all the help and support (speakers, sponsors, volunteers and audience of course).
Anyways the entertainment act for the event was Classik Swiss Choloate. Classik (Luvanga) was born in Geneva but has Congolese roots that clearly have influenced him. Born with music inside him this led him to teach himself how to use synthesizers using YouTube and to experiments with all types of tricks. Thibault at Colors Record (respect to him for bringing some life and music into Geneva by creating his own label) with the help of Theo quickly saw talent and all three are working on his soon to be first album Be Quiet to be released mid-April at Le Chat Noir.
I met with the tall bar of dark chocolate and he made my heart melt with his smile. Humble yet strong and clearly talented, Classik doesn’t make much of a noise when you first meet him but just wait till he gets behind his equipment. I was really impressed by him and we were honoured to have him at TEDxPlainpalais and the crowd loved him. I’ll post the video as soon as we have it.
For now stop complaining about how there is nothing going on in Geneva and support him and his label. Here is his track Get Down
If you like it go check him out, he’ll be at L’antidote with his band on the 28 of February.
Oh when I asked Classik if he wanted to say anything his answer: I like Chocolate.
