Artist Info

Masal

Powered by Audioscrobbler™WHO WE ARE
Masala is a band of four creative musicians, each having their favorite music styles, each having their own musical background. Through a mix of voices, instruments, sounds, atmospheres and styles they celebrate their passion for music. It can barely be called a coincidence they found in each other a soulmate : vocals, piano, vibraphone, bass, drums … Opposites attract, counterparts fit.

Obscure, joyful, musing, moving, exciting, … Their compositions come to life through the interaction between 4 musicians with 1000 ideas but yet only 1 recipe, the So-Fun Fusion. The acoustic sound is being influenced by a whirlpool of music styles from all over the world: a touch of folk, jazz, chanson, rock, country, tango, blues, classic, world music, … without ever being exactly that.

Humor, sadness, improvisation, discipline and spontaneous interaction reflect their emotion in your heart en brings your smile upon their faces. A feeling good experience shared by audience and performers.

WHERE WE COME FROM
Masala was born in 2010 when Piet Haven (vocals, bass), Raph Van Goubergen (vocals, piano), Pieter Dedoncker (drums) and Andries Baele (vocals, violin) – all fellow musicians of the jazz cover band Someone Els – decided to create their own repertoire. From the beginning it was decided not to commit themselves to just one style, but rather to give free rein to all inspiration and fantasies.

The first years were devoted to writing songs and creating a show inspired on an imaginary tribe, the Masalians. An album, March of the Masalians, was published in 2015 followed by several concert tours.

In 2017, guitarist Arthur Maes joined the band. And in 2018 Sébastien Peeters replaced Pieter (who moved to Firenze, Italia) on drums. New songs and a new show called Heads or Tales were created, followed by the Ouroboros Tour in 2019.

Life (and the 2020 pandemic) called Andries and Arthur to go explore new horizons. As soon as the successive periods of confinement were over, Piet, Raph and Sébastien started to rearrange the old songs and to compose new ones, with Sébastien now also playing vibraphone. Maxine Dumont came to complete the band’s repertoire with her own compositions and with her unique and versatile voice.
