ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eric Thomarat's grown in Guadeloupe(French West Indies)where so many different musics went across his ears. He studied Music in Nantes West of France Conservatoire. While he had to become an opera singer, during his military french duty year he travelled a lot singing as a tenor in the French Army Choir. Then travelled through Madagascar, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago where he had fun playing music with bests musicians and bands like the very famous "Desperados Steel Drums Orchestra",the great trinidadian jazz man Mr Michael Boothman, and Carribean musicians like Raymond Grego, Jocelyn Menard, Norman Deveault, Charly Chomereau-Lamotte. He shared stages with most famous calypsonians like Singing Sandra and David Rudder. There he was a great multistyle singer.

Later on, he went back to France where he created Ricothom's label producing his first album under Ricounet's name, "Chansonnettes pas trop nettes". This was partly inspired from his long trips around the world, a creative and surprising way to do ; more over there is an artistic booklet inside a lot in harmony with Ricounet's world made by the surprising artist Isabelle Roux.
...and if you don't understand french, don't worry, everybody understands Ricounet's songs.
Some french, now :
« Ricounet, ce sont des paroles qui résonnent avec le quotidien de l'existence, des petites phrases et des mélodies tranquilles qui trottent et ondulent dans la tête pour ressurgir soudain au détour de la journée... C'est tout empreint de douceur, de tendresse, de sensibilité et de sensualité... Moi, je me laisse bercer sans me lasser... » Myriam, sculptrice.

« Ricounet ? Une musique originale et festive qui parle à l' âme des enfants devenus grands ou pas? » Isabelle, psychologue.

« De ses textes un peu décalés, de ses mélodies joyeuses et légères où transparaissent de temps à autre des sonorités et des rythmes antillais,et de sa voix toujours douce, se dégage un mélange original et nouveau » Ouest France

Eric Thomarat aime Ellington, Trénet, Salvador, Brassens, Perret, Gainsbourg, Marley, Cultier, Vélo, Malavoi, Kassav, Rudder ... Influences métissées des Antilles et de métropole, il y a respectivement passé son enfance et son adolescence. Le reste du temps, il a beaucoup voyagé. Il s’est immergé dans le ska en Jamaïque et le calypso à Trinidad. Aux Antilles, il s’est imprégné des rythmes et des chants variés. Il chante les standards de jazz. En métropole, il a appris la musique et puise le goût des textes francais, des mélodies. Il aime les grands de la variété francaise. Une conseillère artistique propose à Eric de trouver son univers. Il découvre alors son identité de parolier. Son genre musical correspond enfin à ses textes. Ricothom est né.

Eric Thomarat (Ricothom), auteur compositeur interprète, a joué électroniquement tous les instruments de son premier album "Chansonnettes pas trop nettes" de Ricounet. Un premier guitariste, Lionel Di Cioccio (autodidacte, 10 ans de scènes) y a participé ainsi qu’aux premières scènes semi-live de Ricounet. Un autre guitariste, Francois Jubé, le remplace depuis pour une version acoustique et revisitée de l’album et d’autres titres.

Francois Jubé a commencé la guitare à 13 ans ; une envie d’accompagner les chansons des Beatles lui a donné l’envie de s’ouvrir à d’autres styles. Il s’imprègne de musiques et a des idées rythmiques et mélodiques avec des techniques de jeux personnelles : il se dit « au service de sa paresse ». Son inventivité en fait un soliste à part entière. Il aime Hendrix et Marley, Dylan et Lennon, Gaye et Zeppelin, mais aussi Brel et Renaud, et plus récemment Coldplay et Jamiroquaï. Mais ses goûts ne correspondent pas forcement à ses influences. Ricothom est donc le contre pied de sa culture musicale et un challenge qu’il qualifie d'enrichissant.

great CD!
We are a French-American family living in the US. I am always on the look-out for good French music for our son. He loves this, and so do we! I highly recommend Ricounet.

RICOUNET - "Chansonnettes pas trop nettes"
Ricounet, there are lyrics resounding with everyday’s life, little sentences and tranquil melodies running and waving through the head, all of a sudden coming up again alongside day. These songs are full of sweetness, tenderness, sensibility and sensuality. I let myself rock without being tired of.

And for those who understand french, it might be better for me to say :

Ricounet, ce sont des paroles qui résonnent avec le quotidien de l'existence, des petites phrases et des mélodies tranquilles qui trottent et ondulent dans la tête pour ressurgir soudain au détour de la journée...

C'est tout empreint de douceur, de tendresse, de sensibilité et de sensualité...

Moi, je me laisse bercer sans me lasser...


Beautiful CD Stunning
I Really love this Cd it is one of the most beautiful interesting quirky and melodic cds I have heard in a long time and although it is marketed for kids I look forward to sharing the fantastic music on it with the people that listen to the radio show that I do ... I really think you SHOULD go out and BUY IT as it is money well spent ... although it is for kids it is beautifual and melodic and as I said I will play it on the show that I do on local radio just for its sheer originality and beauty alone regularly for sure dom

CD Baby


It's almost unbelievable that this album is for kids. These hip little French pop songs draw from jazz, lounge and world music, occasionally nodding to nursery rhymes. Most importantly, there is a something catchy to each and every song, something your kids can dance to right away.
