Since when do you evolve in music?

Laurent :
In high school, I started playing guitar and piano. Then, quickly, Djé the bass player and I started to play together. The band was born a few months later.
The adventure Mare imbrium could start at the beginning of the years 2000.
Then, everything went crescendo in the investment and the creation until today. The taste for the stage and the studio was immediate.
After several line-up changes, the band stabilized in 2015 with the arrival of Alexandre Fogliani (Eon MhZ...). After several EPs, we recorded our first LP "LIFER" in 2018. Quite a few concerts followed including Brussels, Paris, Reims, Lyon, St Etienne.
Mare imbrium has more than a hundred concerts to date. We are currently recording a 2nd LP.
