Mouvman Alé is a quartet from Reunion led by singer-songwriter Franswa Virassamy-Macé. The music can be described as a hypnotic and electrifying mix of psychrock, pop, traditional rhythms from Reunion and electronics.
The group themselves call it “romans non-galizé rényoné” in their Creole language, which means something like: unpolished/slightly experimental songs from Reunion. With Franswa’s lyrics and melodies, the group plunges into the intense energy of daily life in Réunion: the encounters, the landscapes and the riddles. Artistically and imaginatively, Mouvman Alé is the result of a conversation, an exchange, between the musicians and Tetka, the character who controls the energy of the island.
Since 2018, with three new and young artists in the group, Mouvman Alé has been developing into an increasingly close-knit and tight group, with energy as a guiding principle. With Franswa as the undisputed center and with Benjamin Reboll (electronics, keys, vocals), Baptiste Clément (guitar,
bass, vocals) and Loïc Médoc-Elma (percussion, vocals), Mouvman Alé shows the contemporary, powerful, raw and electrifying side of music from Reunion.
