Érik draws inspiration from his trips, spirituality, peoples, nature, life and performances he’s given in many events and festivals in various countries (Japan, France, Germany, Italy, United States, Mexico, Brazil, Panama, Morocco, Thailand, India [Goa], Nepal and Canada). Rikam is constantly looking for new releases and unreleases music and always had a remarkable, avant-garde music selection.
