Michael Akortia


Michael was not yet born that music was already meant to be. Raised by musicians parents in France, he had to find his way to not stay in their shadow. At the age of 6, his destiny was found, "mum, dad, I want to be a drummer"! Few months later he was on stage facing hundreds of people where his name was claimed.

After studying twelve years in a music school, the desire of learning more about other percussions made him fly away to discover the world as a jam hunter.
Everywhere he has been, he ended up learning from the best and used this knowledge to twiste it into his own style signature. Such as combining classical music with Africans instruments or electronic drum and bass with Handpan. In Japan he has now earned the name of "Groove master".

After being invited on a few Radio and TV shows, he is finally releasing his first album coming this November 15th, "Synchronicity". Please, stay tuned as 5 more albums are on their ways. A second one feat the talented pianist Yukiko Fuku, a third one of Handpan solo, a fourth one with his band SOUBUGEN & Saga Haruhiko including Mongolian voice and horse violin, and finally a fifth and six ones with a collective of Handpan players and the "collectif Prends Ta B.A.F".
