Born in Port-au-Prince in 1981, Ronald Nazaire began his apprenticeship with his father, a master of percussion and Haitian rhythms. At the age of 11, he began his career as a musician with the Troupe National and represented his country Haiti.
His talent was quickly noticed by the musicians of Kampech, a committed group known in Haiti and with which he performed throughout his country and in the United States at important events such as The Carnival of Haiti, the Louisiana Jazz Festival, the Roots and Culture Festival of Miami, and the Roots Festival of New York.
In 2008, Ronald Nazaire arrived in Montreal and quickly became immersed in the arts community. He shares the stage with talented artists including Jean Claude Martineau, Beethova Obas, Boukman Experience, Ti Corn and many others.
Culture, voodoo and Haitian history have always inspired Ronald Nazaire. His love for music and his sense of sharing gave him the opportunity to meet other artists who are now part of the band Rara Soley. Ronald joined the team of Nyata Nyata teachers this past winter.
