Francophonie in Music and songs
Guy Sansonnens write and sing. He won two first prizes in competitions in French-speaking Switzerland. Song and poetry never left him. With deep roots, he promote authenticity, relationships and the quest for awareness with always LOVE in focus. Death and resurrection! He takes pleasure in revealing and praising Ordinary Beauty and the little nothings that carry everything! No judgment, just stubbornness to serve the emotion and intelligence of life. In his songs we even find successful marriages of humor.
