Playing jazz music on the accordion is truly unusual. Richard Galliano is called the “sacred jazz monster” in his native France. Skilled in all kinds of accordions, the French instrumentalist has become a virtuoso thanks to his unique talent and many years of hard work. Born in Cannes, Richard fell in love, as a child, with harmonica sounds he used to hear on the seafront. Later, he did his music studies at a conservatory and won music competitions with his amazing performance of Bach… on the accordion. Richard Galliano was awarded the president’s prize after winning the Trophée Mondial in Valencia.© 2016-2019 moscovery.com
