Edmond Dédé, was a free-born Creole musician and composer. He moved to Europe to study in Paris in 1857 and settled in France. His compositions include Quasimodo Symphony, Le Palmier Overture, Le Sermente de L’Arabe and Patriotisme. He served for 27 years as the conductor of the orchestra at the Théatre l’Alcazar in Paris. NOTE: some records indicate DeDe was born on April 23, 1829, others show he was born November 20, 1927, neither of which take away from his accomplishments. All records show however, that he passed away in 1929.
