Born and raised in French Guiana by Surinamese parents, Patko grew up on his ancestors’ land, in Maroon country, a territory divided in two by a border which he would cross on a regular basis until the civil war broke out in Suriname and forced him and his family to stay on the French side. The community he grew up in was a particularly multicultural one, and included Maroons (the black rebellious slaves who escaped the plantations before slavery was abolished or were descendants of freed slaves), Amerindians, Hindus, Creoles, Brazilians and Laotian Hmongs. Immersed in these different cultures at a young age, Patko will always find in them an endless source of inspiration.

Musically, Patko was influenced early by both traditional and modern genres, and music quickly started to play an important role in his life. Reggae always had a special place, as one of his uncles operated a renowned sound system in Suriname. He started learning bass guitar and the piano when he was 12 years old. After his 17th birthday, he left his village of Acarouany and move to the city of Mana where he joined a reggae band. Leaving for Paris in 2001 and Tours the next year, he met Mighty Kila, with whom he’ll share the stage in sound systems on a regular basis. Whether in Surinamese creole, Jamaican patois or French, Patko has a message to spread.
