"I play Sonor since I was 5, my first drum was a Sonor Force 2001. It's my favorite brand, uncompromising quality and a unique sound." Gabriel Vigroux

Biography

Gabi began early musical education at the age of 3 and later exploited the world of percussion (jumbé, derbouka, congas, bongos, timbales etc ...), taking that road for seven years. At the age of 5 he joined the drumming class of the "Camargue music school" where he stayed and took lessons for 15 years from Davy Honnet, Jean-Baptiste Perraudin, Claude Gastaldin, Jacky Bourbasquet, Joe Hammer and others, partially thanks to the work of SONOR in France, and their national HSMA trophy that he won twice, in 2013 and 2015. At the end of that period he was nominated for the Young Talent Trophy.

After the end of his curriculum, he joined Rémi Ploton's music class at the Béziers Conservatory Mediterranean, obtaining his CEM in 2018, as well as the jazz class of Jean-François Bonnel at the Conservatory of Aix-en-Provence where he was able to take part in the project "minutes" with Raphael Imbert, Anne paceo and Big Ron Hunter.

He has played with Louis Pettruciani, Emmanuel Pi Djob, Melinda Sala, Gabriel Joseph, Meak, and many more, recorded several drums and percussions parts for Sangre Flamenca and Paul-Emile Pêtre's albums.
