Claude Rinaldin "Daden-B1" BEAUBRUN

RESKAPE / POPPY DUVERNE / DADEN-B1 QUINTET

They are many great attributes that can describe Claude Beaubrun, but if the entire world wants to apply one to him, it is “creative”. He uses his drumsticks like a Michael Angelo paintbrush to paint compelling music on his drums and like a magic wand to captivate the heart of the listeners. He is a virtuose who marches to the beat of his drum and the rhythm of his inspiration. Claude Beaubrun has a unique sound drawn from years of being immersed in his musical craft and from playing with the finest musicians around the globe. Many describe his sound as a breath of fresh colors; others, a force to be reckon with; according to the critiques, a musical tour de force. One thing they unanimously recognize is that he is one of the most acclaimed and innovative drummers in the Caribbean. He has the ability to paint compelling pictures and tell captivating stories with the drums.
His emotive playing captivates the soul of fans and critics in intimate settings—such as the many clinics and workshops he has offered in the Caribbean or North America—or on big stages, like the numerous jazz festivals where he has performed with top-notch musicians. Throughout his illustrious career, he has cemented several great collaborations with legends such as Joel Widmaer and jazz big bands like Septentrional Orchestra. He builds cultural bridges using a variety of musical styles to create a garden-fresh, inimitable amalgam. His Afro-Caribbean style is an irrefutable proof.
Best known as Daden-B1, Claude was born in 1982 in Saint-Raphael, Haiti. He was raised in a family where his mom, Josette Deus Beaubrun, introduced him to music at a very early age. He started playing at the age of 7 on a big butter can before he got his real drum kit. As a young boy, music was an integral part of his daily vitamin dose; he was always enthusiastic about music. When his mother took him to live concerts, his eyes always focused on the drummer, and he would sit with the musicians to attend to the needs of the drummers. His faith in God is both the nucleus and the mitochondria of his musical development and professionalism. He always says that he was born a Christian before he became a musician.

As the Drummer of his own band RESKAPE , a Gospel and WorldBeat Band, Claude Beaubrun continues to carve his mark on the music scene by creating new sounds, collaborating with great artists, venturing into uncultivated territories, and inspiring fans around the planet. Surely Claude Beaubrun is set to become a trailblazer and one of the most creative and innovative drummers of our time. His name is destined to be among legends like Jack Dejohnette and Dave Weckl.
