Benin Born singer songwriter Parfait’s style carries traces of his personal and musical journey: lilting West African rhythms, sweet jazz progressions, a touch of reggae, and catchy pop hooks on a solid foundation of American soul. The spirits of Youssou N’Dour, Wynton Marsallis, Ray Charles, and Bob Marley nod appreciatively and tap their toes. Then Parfait starts singing and Al Green joins the circle of geniuses. Parfait’s sweet tenor soaring smoothly into falsetto recalls Reverend Al in his prime. Parfait’s music evokes the unity of the human spirit.
