The Franco-Cameroonian singer and musician Félix Sabal Lecco remembers his journey: a young man in pursuit of a dream and his passion for music.
A master word, an unconditional love, an unbounded admiration for the great man whose repertoire he knows by heart, sums up his wonder for the world of music.
It was then that he was spotted, in the 80s, by Manu Dibango who invited him on a world tour. Félix is 20 years old.

Stars from all over the world fall under the charm of his versatile side, his spectacular playing, his juggling, his power and his precision. His groove is unique and earned him the nickname "Papagroove" by his mentor Manu Dibango.
Félix is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, arranger, songwriter and composer, and enjoys a very high reputation worldwide. He's been playing on Pearl drums for 25 years!
