Monsieur MÂLÂ impressed us with their mature sound fusing jazz with elements of electronic music, rock and further currents from around the world. Direct from France via the ever-on-point Bridge The Gap.
Hailing from Paris, Monsieur MÂLÂ is a combo made of 5 sought-after musicians with their own personal identity, who bonded thanks the shared joy of performing together in the perpetual push to grow creatively.Pre-Save
“Our music is made to make people let go, put aside every complex and free the flow of everyone’s imagination. It induces dance and even trance, but also hopeful nostalgic melodies.”
Championed by the likes of Fip radio, Grigri or TSF in France, they update the fusion tradition for the 21st century, with greater emphasis on collective endeavour than individual prowess. “Lunitudine” is carefully crafted, combining subtlety and colour with the band’s trademark rhythmic drive and irresistible groove.
That rhythmic drive is thanks to the meeting of Swaéli Mbappé’s (China Moses) bass allied to Mathieu Edward’s (De La Soul / Chassol) machine-like drumming. Keys-wizard Nicholas Vella (Mayra Andrade), brings adventurous harmonic language combined with ethereal flavours, supported by airy melodies from Balthazar Naturel and Robin Antunes (sax ; violin/mandolin – Etienne Mbappe).
Monsieur MÂLÂ tell us, “our music is made to make people let go, put aside every complex and free the flow of everyone’s imagination. It induces dance and even trance, but also hopeful nostalgic melodies.”
