"Labelle is clearly a very talented musician, composer and producer. 

His synthesis of modal harmonies and tribal rhythms is very reminiscent of the ‘Fourth World’ created by the venerable Jon Hassell"

Biography

« Maloya electronics of Labelle lives at first as an experience, an accelerator of imagination. Either sung or either declaimed, in the tradition of fonnkèrs from Réunion Island, rhythmical, electronic or more experimental, he is constantly surprising by his capacity to pull atmospheres and by the introspection which he generates.


Resolutely syncretic, the universe of Labelle unites Maloya (from Réunion traditional music) and electronics, colored with Indian and African touches, to give birth to a new shape flirting with the universality.


On stage, Labelle lives in its music and invites the public in the meditative depth, in the dance, even in the trance.»


I.K. 2013.
