Les Mutants Maha (FR) was, according to us, one of the best concerts we hosted these last couple of years. Musical playing and writing of the highest level. Not the most easy thing to swallow, no sing-a-long-songs, but musical aesthetics that conquer your heart and brain.
If the bandname Etron Fou Leloublan rings a bell, then come to see what their frontman is doing today!
Les Mutants Maha are residing at les ateliers claus to record their music in the best possible way. After their work, you're welcome to come and gladden your ears.
LES MUTANTS MAHA
Guigou Chenevier : batterie, compositions

Zizeeria Maha is the name of a butterfly that lives in the region of Fukushima, and is undergoing several mutations since 2011. From that time on Guigou Chenevier starting thinking about creating mutating compositions.
Lau Nau (FIN)
Laura Naukkarinen, aka Lau Nau is one of the most interesting names in the Finnish music scene – a singer-songwriter, producer and film music composer. Her songs are imbued with a cinematic breadth of vision and her idiosyncratic, finely honed soundworld builds on fragile, spectral otherness. Her fourth album ”HEM. Någonstans” (Fonal records 2015) takes us to the fleeting borderline between contemporary classical and experimental music. Live she will perform solo arrangements of both new and old songs with guitar, voice, sampler and toys.
Lau Nau’s first solo albums were released in the US (Locust music 2005 & 2008). She has been touring around world ever since both solo and with her band. The debut album, ‘Kuutarha’, won acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Dusted, with The Wire naming the LP in their top 50 albums of 2005, and citing her Philadelphia show of that year amongst “60 concerts that shook the world”. Lau Nau’s third album ‘Valohiukkanen’ (Fonal records 2012), was nominated for a series of prestigious music prizes in Finland like the Teosto prize.
During the past years, Naukkarinen has been composing music for films, theatre, dance and sound installations. She accompanies silent films live and composes music for feature films. Her original music score for Jan Forsström’s feature film ”Princess of Egypt” was nominated for the Jussi movie prize in Finland 2014.
