Produced and directed in Paris by Marius Cultier himself, here is "Ouelele Souskï". This album represents his first contact with Europe, having lived his entire life in the Americas. After his success in the Antilles where he originates from, Marius’ reputation as a pianist, organist, singer, conductor, arranger and composer grew rapidly.
When commenting on Marius’ appearance on the infamous “Place Des Nations” in front of 15000 people, a Canadian newspaper described Marius Cultier as "a Martinican who creates, modern Afro-Antilles music", underlining both his originality and universality (Montreal : Terre Des Hommes; “From Rock To Soul Festival”).
Marius Cultier started at the very young age, having his own radio show when he was 15; increasing his knowledge of composition, arrangement and piano technique through his formative years. After many tours in the Caribbean and South America, where he once won the “International Piano Contest” in Puerto-Rico, Marius Cultier left for North America. On arrival, Radio-Canada employed him on the “Jazz En Liberté” radio show; a show broadcasted to millions in Canada, U.S.A and Germany. He then went on to produce many other shows for the station.
in the years that followed, Marius took part in many international artistic events (Montreal, Toronto, New York, Boston, California) where his peers consisted of Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, etc, participating in festivals such as Expo 67, Festival Pop, Terres Des Hommes (Trinidad and Tobago pavilion), Place des Arts and Montreal Festival. After records such as “Marius In Quebec”, “Marius at the Place Des Arts” and “Mariu Cultier” Transworld, here is “Ouelele Souskai”, an album blended with the same spices as the Antilles dishes that go by the same name.
