Florian & Santiago

The protagonists Florian & Santiago are none other than Jacques and Florian Sanchez, father-son. The first will work as a freelancer in photography, advertising and publishing. Music is present since early childhood in this southerner who accompanies his harmonica with a guitar. It was the time of Bob Dylan and Hugues Aufray. But it is the singer-songwriter Georges Brassens who will be the one to choose the variety artists of the 60s and 70s. Jacques knows the repertoire of the poet from Sète well enough to interpret it from 1995 onwards to a unique and precious public. Thus, Florian will fall asleep every night on a tone approximately identical to the veteran. He is particularly fond of the song "Au bois de mon cœur" because it reminds him of the Forêt de Soignes, which he walks through every Sunday morning when the weather conditions allow it.

In turn, the audience discovered a new idol, the singer Renaud Sechan, known as "Renaud", whom they immediately compared to the spiritual son of Georges Brassens. At the age of eight, Florian took piano lessons. To celebrate the end of the year, he played the instrument at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. After college and in the same city, he will continue his training at the SAE.

From 2007 Jacques and Florian will lead three artists in Cuba. The natives have difficulty in articulating the first name "Jacques". The latter, not recognizing himself in an uncertain "Raqués", will stop his choice on Santiago. Name of the second city of the country, which moreover, reminds him of his Spanish origins.

The one who could have devoted her whole life to music, that Jacques called "Marylise" and Florian "Marraine" is so present in their hearts that the tandem dedicates a song to her memory. The profession encourages them. From then on, melodies and harmonies take over to overcome the absence of the missing person.
