“I sang in Muslim Gospels, in Madrassas. I had a higher pitched voice than the others, so I was always doing the lead. Initially, they called me that to make fun of me. But in fact, I kept the name“, confides to us the former leader of Psy 4 de la Rim, who specifies in the process: “Luckily, when I started my career, there was the series The Sopranos who was carding! But my name has nothing to do with the show in the first place.”

“I have seen the whole series 8 times. I bought all the DVDs at the time. I drunk all my friends with this series. It even served as the concept for my first solo album, in which we go to a shrink. Because, as we see in the doc series, the music served as my shrink in a sense. She allowed me to see my life in the face”.
Soprano and The Sopranosa great love story!
