« Identité » is an explosive and colourful jazz album, marrying the rhythmic timbres of the Indian Ocean; Maloya from Reunion Island tinged with the harmonies of American jazz.

Rhythm, melody and improvisation are the key values that the album embodies, always moving between the lines of the genres of jazz. Inspired by “the knowledge of the Ancients and the people from Reunion” Gael Horellou feels he has found an authentic energy and power through the African pulsation of Maloya jazz.
“An identity to be found somewhere between a Creole cabin roof and the red bricks of Brooklyn."

Gaël Horellou : alto sax, composition
