Biyografi[edite | modifye sous]

Jean Jean-Pierre se fondatè a ak lidè okès Kiskeya. Li fèt ak li grandi nan Pòtoprens nan Ayiti. Jean Jean-Pierre li te kòmanse fòmasyon li kòm yon tanbouyè ak li jwe lokalman avèk gwoup Bossa Combo ak atis popilè tankou zetwal Ayiti a Ansy Dérose, chantè brezilyen Nelson Ned, ak chantè pòtoriken Daniel Santos.

Li demenaje ale rete nan Etazini nan ete an 1974 epi byen vit benyen tèt li nan mond mizik Nouyòk la.

Li te distenge tèt li kòm yon mizisyen ak konpozitè e jwe avèk plizyè bann ki gen estil varye ant R & B ak pop-rock. Jean Jean-Pierre kòmanse yon karyè jounalis konsantre sou pwoblèm ayisyen, ekri pou Village Voice la ak United Nations Radio ak kòm yon kwonikè pou Jounal Gannett - tout pandan li ap ekri ak pwodui mizik.

An 1995, ansanm ak sineyas Jonatan Demme ki genyen yon Oska ak avoka dwa moun Michael Ratner, Jean-Pierre fonde MAPOU Productions Ltd., dedye a pwomosyon kilti Dayiti. Menm lanne a, Jean-Pierre ak MAPOU Productions pwodui "Bouyon Rasin", festival ayisyen-entènasyonal mizik "rasin" la. Li te pwodui evènman regilye mizik nan New Jersey Performing Arts Center la ak nan Carnegie Hall.

An 1995, Jean-Pierre te travay avèk Ministè Kilti Ayiti pou ede entegre ankò Ayiti nan Konvansyon Bèn (pou pwoteksyon dwa otè). Aktyèlman Jean-Pierre se direktè ak fondatè Kiskeya, òkès ayisyen an. Li konpoze Ode à Jean Do, yon konpozisyon mizikal nan fim ki fèk reyalize pa Jonathan Demme, agwonòm lan, ki rakonte lavi premye jounalis Ayiti a, Jean Dominique, ki te asasinen sou 3 avril 2000.

Aprè tranblemanntè Ayiti nan dat 12 janvye 2010, Jean-Pierre te ale nan Repiblik Dominikèn paske li te, jan li te di li : "sipòte pa yon sans pwofon de rekonesans, pou fason an ki gen vwazen yo vin prete Ayisyen yo sipò yo".

Minis Kilti, Maestro Jose Antonio Molina, anrejistre avèk òkès Senfonik Repiblik Dominikèn lan “Ayiti Leve Kanpe/ Haiti Get Back Up” sou 27 janvye 2010 nan El Palacio de Bellas Artes. Nan mwa out 2010, Jean-Pierre te onore pa Ministè Kilti Repiblik Dominikèn nan teyat nasyonal pandan sezon ouvèti òkès la.

Jean Jean-Pierre ak Òkès Kiskeya[edite | modifye sous]

Founded in 1995 by drummer, composer and arranger Jean Jean-Pierre, the Kiskeya Orchestra is a 25-piece ensemble that combines classical, pop, and the best of Haitian and Caribbean traditional music, all percolating over a hot bed of excitedly syncopated island rythms. The Kiskeya Orchestra is the ancestral home of the Taino people where African and Europeans meet creating a vibrant sonic mélange.

The Kiskeya Orchestra surpassed itself in a sterling performance in May 2003 at Carnegie Hall, during the presentation Haiti: The Rythms, the Dances and the gods starring Danny Glover and Theresa Randle. The orchestra’s first CD, entitled 1804-2004 Happy Birthday Haiti, was released in January 2004 on Global Beat Records, Gary Topper is the conductor.

Vision[edite | modifye sous]

While it is irrefutable that the Perez Prado Orchestra, Benny More and the Sonora Matancera – all three from Cuba - were the best known large musical formations in the Caribbean to have influence in the 1950”s and 60”s most musicians from the area, in Haiti, the Issa El Saieh and the Jazz des Jeunes were the musical templates that inspired many generations of musicians.

Jean Jean-Pierre’s musical education came from these great bands, which could easily combine the sound of a Benny Goodman or a Cab Galloway with the plethora of Haitian rhythms, a result of a confluence of tribes from Africa. (According to the incomparable Haitian master drummer (Mapou) Azor, Haiti claims more than (95 rhythms and combinations of rhythms.)

Jean Jean-Pierre, through his series of annual concerts at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and recordings, uses the Kiskeya Orchestra as the vehicle to promote this music pioneered by those wonderful Haitian orchestras, a sound emulated all throughout the Caribbean.

Enabled by its vibrant human and musical mosaic, the Kiskeya Orchestra is poised to continue gracing the worlds’ most prestigious concert halls and stages.
