  Miami, Florida – Monday April 1st, 2019 Haitian American artist and Miami resident, Yanatha Desouvre, records a cross-generational duet of Jacques Brel’s Ne Me Quitte Pas (recorded in America by Nina Simone and Wyclef Jean), with his late uncle Daniel Charles Coulanges, who was once introduced as of the ‘World’s Finest’ classical guitarist. Coulanges died of HIV/AIDS at the tender age of 28 on April 30, 1989 only two years before Magic Johnson made his announcement. This dynamic family duet that has been 30 years in the making was recorded at the University of Miami Frost School of Music L. Austin Weeks Recording Studio, home to the three Grammy Award winner John Daversa.

Desouvre is using Coulanges’s music to raise awareness about HIV, encouraging everyone to know their own HIV status. 

It all started in the spring of 2016, when Desouvre received a priceless package in the mail, from Paris to Miami with love. He opened the box, found a video, placed it in his video player, and pressed play. The harmonious sounds of his late uncle and godfather, Daniel Coulanges, filled the room as Coulanges played an unaccompanied classical guitar adaption of “Ne Me Quitte Pas.” As the video continued, Desouvre saw and heard a number of musical masterpieces, including Don’t Cry for Me Argentina and Killing Me Softly; Desouvre felt Coulanges' presence as if they were in the same room. “When I saw the video, with each guitar string my godfather plucked, I cried and cried. I was 11 years old when I last saw uncle Daniel alive. My godfather was speaking directly to me with each and every guitar string he plucked.”, Desouvre spoke. With tears in his eyes, he continued, “I feel I've been called to do something to keep him alive through his music and education.”  That is exactly what Desouvre is doing
