Emilien’s debut Reves brings the Sega of Mauritius to a Pop Audience Paris: Guitarist and vocalist Emilien had released his solo debut Reves (“dreams”), spanning the bridge from the Sega of his native Mauritius to classic pop, influenced by forefathers such as the Beatles and Simon and Garfunkle. Emilien has written ten original tracks which he delivers in English, French, and Mauritian Creole with a pure tenor voice. Emilien, who has sang and played guitar since his childhood in Port Louis, is accompanied on bass, contrabass, sax, clavier, violin, and sitar. The variety of instruments creates pop/folk/world hybrid that reflects his travels and residence in no less than five countries. While his exposure to American and English pop music during his youth has greatly influenced the sound and structure of his compositions, Emilien is not an avid consumer today’s music. Rather than mimic other contemporary musicians, Emilien is inspired by his own travels and studies (he has multiple degrees and is a Doctor of Psychology and Pharmacology!) as source material for his songs. The influence of Mauritian Sega on the album counterbalances the contemplative and down-tempo tracks such as “Le Violon,” and “Give Me Love.” Sega has traditionally served as a liberating means of expression for the fishing people of Port Louis. While the music has evolved beyond the solo accompaniment of the percussive Ravane, the rhythms of Sega still accelerate to allow the dancers to reach a state of ecstatic frenzy. “Mamzelle” and “Zoli Femme” are the purest Sega tracks on the album, and have been the most popular during Emilien’s live performances. The “dreams” of Reves are hopeful and sensual. Emilien’s audience is invited on an inter-continental voyage through the benevolent and vibrant psyche of an accomplished man. They are dreams we all can relate to, although we may not dream in three languages! Emilien is currently planning a tour in France in support of Reves. Other members of Emilien’s international audience can log on to his website in anticipation of international tours.
