“I had the pleasure of hearing David Laronde Trio perform as a regular in our Jazz at the Junction Concert Series. As a performer David is engaging and has a very warm rapport with his audience. His stories and songs speak of the rich historical ancestral roots of his people, the Teme-Augama. These songs move me.
