 Questions – Monica M Lawton for Style Compass Media
Answers – Jean-marc Bagoée
Please introduce yourself.
Hey you, I am Jean-Marc, I come from Martinique a small French colony in the West Indies.
What are your origins?
Well my last name is a slave’s name.  My ancestors on my dad’s side were deported from Africa and, a Chinese immigrant.  (my great great grandad’s name was Pong Song hahah) and my mum is from Belgium.
Jean-marc, his father, and cousin.
Jean-marc, his father Stephen Bagoée, and cousin.
Was music a part of your childhood, and what type of music did you
listen to?
Music was and has always been everything.  Apart from being a surgeon my dad, Stephen Bagoée was a musician and, a melomane (music lover).  So the spectrum was large from Serge Gainsbourg, Erik Satie, John Coltrane, to Itzhak Perlman and the list goes on….
What is your first memory of a song, or music you heard which resonated to your soul?
It probably happened with reggae.  I’d say the drum song from Jackie Mittoo (for those who know).  My life always revolved around music so I’d say, Chronic 2000 from Dr Dre, but also this track from Isolée (beau mot plage) those artists changed my way and, had a major influence on the decisions I took…
When did you first begin to travel, and what lesson did you learn from traveling which you still keep to this day?
I was fortunate enough to travel early on.  I’ve spent a lot of time in The States and, Asia.  It taught me that the country where I am from, does not totally define who I am.

What brought you to Bali?
What do you do to relax?
What excites you?
My dreams and, I’m coming at them like a spider monkey.  
At the moment, attending the  further future festival is like a dream come true.
If you could choose another career, what would it be?
I wouldn’t.
What projects have you worked on?
Well too much to say, it always revolved around connecting music and, the arts to deliver the ultimate entertainment.  I guess this off Broadway show called La Guarda when I was 14.  The work of Carlito Dalceggio, DEEPLY INSPIRED ME.  (cique du soleil) which I happened to represent at XS art gallery in Paris when I was 21.
 What current projects do you have in store?
I’m currently selling 3d mapping in Asia.
 You call your group of friends, your ‘tribe’, what does this mean to you?
What personal, or professional goals have you set for yourself?
To become a better person everyday, I still have a lot of work to do ;-), on the professional side I’m on my path
If a party were to be hosted in your honor, what speech would you give, and what would you want your tribe to walk away feeling, or thinking about you?
Yeah well my tribe knows all about me and, they love me anyways.  I don’t think a speech would alter their perception.  I would just make sure that they leave feeling little better than when they showed up.
