groundbreaking album Folklore:
A suite inspired by the mystical

Charles began writing Folklore in
2007, commissioned by the Museum
of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
The suite was premiered in August
2007 at the MoMA Summergarden
Concert Series. In 2008, Etienne
recorded the composition for his
2nd album. Folklore (Culture Shock
Music 2009) received critical acclaim
worldwide for its unique concept
as well as stellar compositions and
playing throughout. The album was
hailed by Jazz Times Magazine in the
USA as "a fascinating, fully realised
hybrid." Jazzwise Magazine (UK)
profoundly stated that with Folklore
"Charles has managed to bring to
life a very vivid sense of the mystery,
the magical realism-the luminous
folklore of the Caribbean."
A release said since the album's
release, Folklore has been performed
in London (PanJazz UK), Ottawa
(Ottawa Jazz Festival) and again in
New York ( Jazz at Lincoln Center).
