Burghausen / Germany




Label Babil - 2018


Trough Chroniques, the quintet Melusine invites you to follow its music in the labyrinth of its wordless stories, musical tales which open to all the possible worlds. It's a book made of all the in between the lines; it's a musical adventure where your imagination is the hero and through which you can reveal landscapes and characters.

Label Babil - 2017


It all starts with a fugue, this complex exercise in baroque music whose name in french also evokes a run away - and this is exactly how the album will continue to unfold, through solos of rock guitar, gliding accordion flights or the underground rumbles of a saturated euphonium [...] The quintet Melusine thus intrigues and keeps you in suspense throughout this singular and successful first album.

Melusine, a jazz band that narrates wordless stories.


Imperturbable in its ethereal ballads as in its long resistant rises, in its small pointillist fugues as in its electric assaults, the music of Melusine, quintet formed in 2014, runs through many changing atmospheres. Here they bet on the exigency of defying the harmonic tables as well as on the originality of the line-up. Accordion and euphonium facing the guitar/doublebass/drums trilogy. So many possibilities to harness the tensions among repertoires and to see rock music, free improvisation and classical heritage battle each other.
