About the artist

Ravi shardja aka Xavier Roux, is a french composer multi-instrumentalist, he developed a wide musical activity which brought him for example to study the carnatic music (South India) or to realize numerous theme musics as well as for the video films, theater, the dance, the radio, the architecture and art installations. Among diverse experiments of groups and musical collaborations, he is in particular a founder member of the band "Gol" with Jean-Marcel Busson, Frédéric Rebotier and Samon Takahashi. Quite as Gol, the music of Ravi Shardja stretches between multiple horizons, letting more still maybe appear the influence of ethnical musics than the band. On his own label Suara Papua since 2007 several solo projects went out, in particular «  Komando papua  » a 6 years big work of composition with the sounds and field recordings he caught in West Papua and Papua New Guinea in 2001 at the occasion of the documentary film «  West Papua  » by Damien Faure whose relates about forgotten little war in this part of Oceania. Ravi Shardja is also a part of the italian and french band Oleo Strut, and groovy duet Couloir Gang.
