Grace Barbé  - Tou Lanwitt
Over a year in the making, Welele! is preceded by several years touring and performing all over Australia, New Zealand and the Indian Ocean. The sound of the album reflects this period in having an organic, live feel: “The band started recording to an old 16 track tape machine and that aesthetic informed the making of the entire album”, explains Grace.

Welele! is an exclamation in Seychellois-Kreol used to express excitement, surprise, humour, approval, shock and even drunkenness! An apt title then for an album that is likewise so remarkably varied in expression, mood and feels, while maintaining a common thread - Grace’s birthplace and muse, the tiny Indian Ocean island nation of Seychelles.

From the dark days of slavery to the forging of an incredibly rich and diverse culture; the hardships and of island life, the joy and release of celebration, life in the expatriate diaspora and of course a little love interest, Welele! reads like a love letter to Seychellois people and culture.
