Monsieur mâlâ

It only took a few years for Monsieur MÂLÂ to establish itself as one of essential formations of the exciting and very selective new French scene.

New album scheduled for the end of March 2024.

Available for booking


Linked by a long-standing friendship, Balthazar Naturel (saxophones, English horn, clarinets), Nicholas Vella (keyboards), Robin Antunes (violin and mandolin), Swaéli Mbappé (bass), soon joined by Yoann Danier (drums) joined their strengths and invented their own way of mixing genres, a sound that grips the guts, makes bodies move and imaginations travel, with a unique color, immediately catchy and recognizable.

From contagious grooves to haunting melodies and cinematic panoramas, these highly sought-after instrumentalists, each of whom is a reference in their field, are above all storytellers whose each piece is a story without words, and each passage on stage a great moment of communion.

Already one of the essential groups with which the next pages of jazz will be written in France and beyond, Monsieur MALA is also more than that: a human and musical adventure in the image of France today, exciting, inventive and mixed.
