Maloya / Contemporary / Jazz
Bastien Picot is a polymorphic singer-songwriter from La Reunion. He lives between his bewitching island and Paris, the frenetic city of light, and collaborates with many national and international artists around the globe. He has been a backing singer for Stevie Wonder, Fred Wesley, Charles Aznavour or even Yael Naïm with his project 3somesisters, and has recently recorded as lead singer on a jazz album directed by Richard Bona, with André Ceccarelli, Sylvain Luc and Hadrien Feraud. At the intersection of English and Creole, his multi-ethnic roots conveyed by Maloya’s traditional instruments meet a modern orchestration, in a tribal pop shell that is reminiscent of Woodkid, Bon Iver or Alt-J.
