Patrice was born 2 a German mother, and a Sierra Leonan father who was a writer and an activist. The same day he was born , his grandfather left earth, he was given the name of Baba Tunde 2 celebrate him..

As a child , Patrice dived in both his parents native cultures, speaking both languages, listening to all kind of music. Inspired by Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, spending time w/African peeps in Cologne colored his music w/africanism....

He delivered his first album at the age of 18 years old, "Lions" was 1 of his first hits..and when Lauryn Hill came 2 Germany, he was the concert first act...
In 2001 he joined Youssou Ndour, Manu Chao in Mali for the famous Festival in the Desert...From 1999 to 2008 Patrice has released 4 albums ... I watched a video clip of 1 his concerts and he seems so natural on stage, it's like he's just playing for himself or a few friends even though the room is filled at capacity...

He's all about social consciousness, positivity...... good stuff He has 1 new album set to be released on May 18th called "Patr-iation...glad I discovered this brotha...:)
