Born in Pointe-Noire, Congo Brazzaville, Jean-Pierre Makosso was taught by his mother MA M’KAYI and is from a family-based and traditional background. Enrolled in an occidental school system, he has in his pragmatic journey been listening and observing. Throughout his schooling, he quickly displayed his taste for the word to become the griot of those who do not have one. As a theatre director and actor, he has toured the world three times with Company Punta-Négra (Congo), Théâtre du Corps (France), and Théâtre Amiel (Switzerland). Living in Canada since 2001, he works with Traditional Company Masabo and also writes and directs plays for Canada world youth.

He is also a bilingual comedian and storyteller (English-French) who leads his own cultural group. He performs and gives workshops in schools, universities, and festivals worldwide. As writer and poet he has written La voix du Conteur (French short stories), Le cri du triangle(French poetry), Human Works (English poetry), and Il était une fois…ce jour-là (French novel), published by Éditions Dédicaces in Montréal.
