Monsieur Mala

Monsieur Mala

Line-up: NICHOLAS VELLA keys ROBIN ANTUNES violin, strings and mandolin; SWAELI MBAPPÉ bass, guitars; BALTHAZAR NATUREL English horn, oboe and bass clarinet; MATHIEU EDWARDS drums


"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"

The 5 musicians update the fusion tradition for the 21st century, with the emphasis on collective endeavour rather than individual prouesse. On their debut EP, the music is carefully crafted, combining subtlety and colour with the band’s trademark rhythmic drive and irresistible groove power.

The band packs a mighty rhythmic punch courtesy 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).
