The French-Rwandan singer and writer, born in Burundi, is one of the new stars of rap, hip-hop and slam in France. His first solo album Pili Pili Sur Un Croissant Au Beurre was already very successful. Recently he published his first novel Petit Pays (Small Country) which is translated into 26 languages and has already sold more than 400,000 copies, winning various prizes on the way. His appearance at the Olympia was sold out months in advance and is considered a sort of consecration for performers of all genres. Gaël Faye is one of the new voices of France.
