Magic System developed a reputation for high-energy live shows, which earned them an important ally, talent scout Claude Bassolet.

In 2001 the quartet released Poisson d’Avril, which shot to the top of charts from Africa to the Antilles. Simultaneously, a remix of their first mega hit, “1er Gaou,” produced by Bob Sinclar, dominated the French airwaves.

Magic system 2006 release, Cessa Kié la Vérité, earned an impressive slot on Billboard’s European Top 100.

The group entertained audiences worldwide, including stops in Morocco, Madagascar, the U.K., and Sweden, as the band’s audiences swelled to over 25,000 at individual shows. Their 2007 release, Ki Dit Mie, topped world music charts across Europe for months following its release.

In 2011, they released Toutè Kalé and quickly followed it up with the 2012 release D’Abidjan à Paris.

Though not approaching the level of success achieved by previous projects, Magic System‘s Un Gaou à Paris sold well, garnering them invitations to perform for immense audiences from Paris to Zambia.
