Code Rouge feat. Arona

Code Rouge lives in Molenbeek and has been fascinated with rap music for 15 years now. He discovered rap music by listening to 'IAM' at the age of 16 and realized that it could be a beautiful way of expression and a creative way to play with language. He released his first record 'For the color of our eyes' in 2008, sadly in the context of Joe Holsbeeck's assasination.

 

Since then he worked with a lot of artists all over the world, making songs like 'Horizon' with Emel Mathlouthi (Tunisia), 'Printemps' with Maya Safar (from Syrian origin), or working together with Arona (Senegal) and Sonando En La Habana (Cuba).

Code Rouge is radically engaged and refuses to compromise.
