“The music of MASALADOSA is a studied creation. Accompanying the mystic oscillations of the sitar are percussions and ragas brought from India, but also Jamaican grooves, World, Dub, Drum n’ Bass, gently salted with a touch of electro. “A fusion of our musical origins and our studies of Indian music,” explains Pierre-Jean Duffour; “It took us three years before we were able to create our own sound”. But in the end, the band was able to digest its influences (Ravi Shankar, Talvin Singh or the Suns of Arqa) and give us a summary which was as exotic for us as for the Indian public, come to applaud the band in 2005 at their concert in Pushkar. Album: Chill Aum, label: “Masalasound/Recrec”, Téléram Dub Festival - Thursday 18th of May 2006, 20:15, Trabendo - Frédéric Peguillan


“An innovative sound to be acquired A.S.A.P!” - Ambre Foulquier

“MASALADOSA, quality World music” June 2006 - Le Parisien


“Strong sensations with MASALADOSA” June 2006 - A Nous Paris


“ MASALADOSA has the particularity of being able to lay sitar and tabla on a base of electro which is at the same time lounge and easy to dance to. A musical field that seduces without hesitation….of an irreproachable workmanship, this travel invitation cannot be refused.” June 2005 - Bruno Aubin


“A strong atmosphere reigned on Saturday night at Parc St Marie, where MASALADOSA delighted over 3000 people” - L'Est Republicain


“With this band there is no bad aftertaste of déjà-vu. A mixture full of surprises which we personally feel like classifying under “music to listen to with eyes closed” and “talented band to follow up on”. - La Poudre d'Escampette


“MASALADOSA blends all the frontiers into a superb whole. This isn’t just another collage but a real artistic creation. A personal favourite, full of symbols!” April 2005 - Infratunes


“What a gift to have them on stage at the ZOO (Geneva) the 6th May 2005, on a night with Indian atmosphere, as if made for them. Five excellent musicians, who are able to combine the slightly acid sound of the sitar with Dub, Electro and a down and up tempo. MASALADOSA’s sound is powerful yet controlled.
Bass, drums, percussions, machines and sitar mix and blend in a beautiful manner to create a live act that rouses the crowd with pleasure. A warm and cordial live worthy of these musicians that give their all on stage for a concert full of emotion and good sound.” - www.lezoo.ch


“Excellent “Asian Underground” live act by the French MASALADOSA.” - www.letemps.ch

ELECTRONICA MEETS INDIA
From London to Calcutta, from Kingston to Pushkar, the music of Masaladosa draws its influences in the heart of the diversity of cultures to draw a tasty nectar, subtle alchemy of Indian music and Jamaican grooves, delicately spicy electro. Produced in the Real World studios of Peter Gabriel in England, "ELECTRO WORLD CURRY", the new opus of the French Trio, is already a warmly welcomed to the 4 corners of the world.
