About Jean-Hérard “Richie” Richard:
Richie has always felt that he was born with two drumsticks in his hands. The first time he sat behind a drum set was during his first year in elementary school in Cap-Haitian (Haiti). It was there where he was appointed to lead his music class. In 9th grade, he formed his first musical group, Power X. In 1990, he and his new band, Fashion recorded 3 jingles for a radio station in his hometown Cap-Haitian. These jingles are still heard today on Radio 4VKB.
After moving to the United States, he studied Music Technology at Broward Community College (BCC). After a short experience with American and Jamaican bands, he decided to play Compas and formed in 1992 his own band Tah-Pajj with Arly Larivière, Gazzman Couleur, Ernst Benjamin, Nixon Mézidor and Raphaël Robillard and released the album entitled "Bozo". In 1999, he became officially a new member of Zenglen. Since the success of "Easy Compas," the first single written for Zenglen, he has been appointed to direct and produce the band’s upcoming albums: “Easy Konpa,” “Let it groove,” “Do it right,” “5 Etwal” and “5e Vitès”. Meanwhile, he has been producing his own projects “Le Compas: Happy Fifty” and “Richie & Gracia”. With Richie: 10 Ans Plus Tard, this talented and popular producer and musician is celebrating his 10th anniversary of experience and success with his band mates and his fans.
