Roger Pothin releases new album after two-year break

Roger PothinAfter a two-year break from the music scene, local artist Roger Pothin has released a new album entitled ‘Paradis Vallée de Mai’.

Pothin says the album contains songs about his life, both positive and negative, in different genres.

The album comprises 11 songs, two of which are instrumental. Musician and producer Roger Pothin has been the creator of music for many years. Pothin is a lyricist who also composes his own music.

The album, which contains songs in different genres such as reggae and sega, is on sale on Mahé, Praslin and La Digue at various music outlets at R150 a copy. However if you buy it from the artist in person it will cost you only R100.

The singer, who also plays the guitar, uses a mixture of gossip, life and love in his songs through the passion to create music.

In each song, the words contain a message, which he wants to deliver to all listeners, young and old.

“I’m currently employed, but music has always been something I love. Every time I get some free time I write, about anything really, and this goes on and on. The more I get ideas or scenarios that I feel strongly about, I write, until eventually they become songs which are put together to form an album.

“A lot goes into producing a song, but it was worth my effort and time to create something that I love,” says Pothin.

To get a copy of the album, you can contact Pothin on 2588500 or check record stores.

With Ricky Fred as the music arranger and Sandra Esparon doing backing vocals, it’s clear that Pothin has put a lot of time and effort into each of his songs.

He urges people to get themselves an original copy.
