Claudius Barbin

to the rhythm of the Guadeloupean heart

Saint Louis, Marie Galante.png

In his studio located on the edge of the Riviera, in Gosier, Claudius Barbin opens the doors of his workshop. A place where you can hear, from outside, the sounds of the gwoka. Claudius Barbin is a local celebrity. Self-taught, he has achieved true excellence in his art. If he has been creating traditional drum - the Ka - for 25 years, it is for the love of the music and his country.

"I want to give beauty to my country. We have been sent ugliness, I think we have beauty. All beings are beautiful, for me beauty is the heart."
