Nicknamed the Paganini of the double bass, Renaud Garcia-Fons earned his spurs as an accompanist for such big names in jazz as Louis Sclavis, Michel Portal, Mino Cinelu and Rabih Abou Khalil. He uses a five-string double bass and draws on a range of influences, including Indian music, tango, flamenco - and even the bagpipes. A veteran of the stage, Garcia-Fons performs regularly as a solo artist, as part of a trio, or at the head of such groups as Oriental Bass Band and Navigatore. In early 2009, he released the album Línea del Sur. Méditerranées came out the following year. 2012 saw the release of a live CD/DVD recording, Solo - The Marcevol Concert. The same year, Garcia-Fons playd the Festival with the Free Flamenco Trio. In 2015, the musician released Paseo a Dos, recorded and composed with pianist David Dorantes.
