It appeared to me as obvious. Listening to this album of Okou, Serpentine, requires more attention from us. Its intrinsic quality, both in substance and in form, can not be doubted. Unfortunately we have no time to introduce you in detail. But it is undeniable that this album is placed in the top of the pool of current productions.
So, no hesitation to have. You have to listen carefully to this album of Okou, Serpentine. I can assure you that you will not regret it. Perhaps the fate of it is to enter definitively into the great history of rock, in the broadest sense. You can not say that you had not been warned ... - www.rocknfrance.com


"Serpentine" VÖ Frühjahr 2010



Okou was born from the encounter between singer/songwriter Tatiana Heintz and guitarist/composer Gilbert Trefzger in a Parisian bar.
Tatiana, from the Ivory Coast, spent most of her nomadic childhood and teenage years discovering new horizons from the West African continent to Europe. To then settle for a while in London, where she worked with various musicians such as Keziah Jones, Mick Jagger, Nuspirit Helsinki, The Five Corners Quintet, Shaun Escauffery and more. Gilbert is from Switzerland with Egyptian roots. He started playing guitar at the age of nine. He is a diverse instrumentalist and covers many styles of music, playing guitar, steelguitar, aoud and banjo. He has worked with artists such as Nitin Sawhney, Jamaican singer Roy Ellis, Lovebugs and many more. Gilbert has collaborated on movie soundtracks such as "Someone beside you" by Edgar Hagen, "Mein Fuehrer" by Dani Levy and also writes music for theatre. Together, Tatiana and Gilbert are currently working on their first album backed by Universal Publishing France. A folky, soulful breath of fresh air...
