Drumming in Myanmar 'one of my craziest experiences', Anne Paceo

By Alison Hird

French drummer and composer Anne Paceo has been nominated in the jazz category at this year's Victoires de la musique - the French equivalent of the Grammys. At the tender age of 32, the globe-trotting musician has already performed in more than 40 countries, breaking down musical boundaries between jazz, world and rock wherever she goes.

After the release of her fourth album Circles, she talks to RFI about drumming in a man's world and her love of Myanmar where she's helped introduce the young generation to jazz.

Paceo is currently on tour with her latest formation: Leila Martial (vocals), Emile Parisien (sax), Tony Paeleman (keys) and Christophe Panzani (saxophone).
