Theo Hakola

July 2, 2011

An American musician, writer, actor and director who has been based in Paris since the late 70s, THEO HAKOLA is a committed cultural activist. He was the man behind ORCHESTRE ROUGE in the early 80s and then PASSION FODDER before embarking on a solo career in 1993.

Twelve albums later, one can only admire the quality of a career which comes from a humanism that is shredded by the anger of despair: a pain inflicted on us by the human condition and the insults of so many people in power.

Theo Hakola is a fascinating character with sharp sincerity. He has written songs with great fury, but also with beautiful expressions of love. And it is probably no coincidence that he produced the first record by legendary French rock band NOIR DESIR.

For this 7ème Ciel concert, Theo Hakola was joined by his loyal accomplice and violinist, Bénédicte Villain. It was the first acoustic concert that the wonderful Theo has performed during his long and exciting career.
