The funeral of Serge Lebrasse took place yesterday in the presence of a large crowd who came to pay their last respects. Artists, politicians and members of the public were present at the church in St Anne to pay their last respects to Serge Lebrasse.
Serge left his mark on local music in many ways. In the late 60’s, Father Henri Souchon asked him to write a song about Catholic religious holidays, at the request of Monsignor Liston. This is how he wrote Père Laval, which was to pave the way for Creole hymns. The government also called on Serge Lebrasse for major celebrations and visits by eminent personalities. This was notably the case during the visit of Queen Elizabeth II. And the famous Moris mo ti pei which will remain a legendary sega.
