"Koudlam was born in 1979 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. As a kid, he loved to walk in the bush imagining he was doing such courageous acts as saving young girls. He read a great deal. His heroes were a diverse group, including the great mountain climber Reinhold Messner, the poet Charles Baudelaire and Jim Morrison." This June 1 sees the release of Koudlam's new EP "Alcoholic's Hymns." Launch party tonight in Paris. More info here.
