A globe-trotter and a musician, Boris Lelong has been residing for nearly twenty years among various rural communities in Africa and Asia, with whom he undertakes art projects based on their music heritage. He also worked in the cosmopolitan city of Saint-Denis, France, and led unique, intercultural ventures connecting with music these radically different worlds. Exploring the planet with a musician's ear, Boris Lelong closely observes the social know-how of the villagers whose life he shares. With their artistic universe deeply connected to their natural environment and to their social life, they can provide us with promising ways of understanding human development. He led cultural projects with the Tboli tribal community in the Philippines (Sout-East Asia), with the tibetan refugees of Ladakh (Indian Himalaya), in Zambia and Lesotho (Southern Africa), in the Mauritanian Sahara (West Africa) and lately in the Betsileo highlands in Madagascar (Indian Ocean), as well as in the city of Saint-Denis, France. He gave talks at the Quai Branly Museum, at the National Museum for Asian Arts Guimet (Paris, France), at the University of the Philippines (Manila, Philippines), the Espace Senghor (Bruxelles, Belgium), etc. His music works have been acclaimed by major french cultural magazines such as Télérama, Les Inrockuptibles, Mondomix, and were awarded by the prestigious Charles Cros Academy. Ten years of work with the City of Saint-Denis, managing sociocultural project with the inhabitants, led to a ministerial award in 2010.
