re·un·ion
 : an act of coming or bringing together again

Gaël and Romane Marimoutou have chosen this idea of “bringing together again” as the central notion of their musical and artistic project.

OMA’s debut EP « E in Motion » delivers a fusion of electro-pop entwined in traditional Reunionese roots. Their music is inspired by the island’s brilliantly diverse cultural expressions, stemming from African, European and Indian influences.

With sensitivity and humility, OMA appreciates and incorporates technical elements into their craft, forging freely into the creative unknown – cultivating a unique soundscape, rich with folk percussive layers, organic polyrhythms and delicate electronic articulations.

Gaël’s spatial arrangements offer a fertile space for Romane’s vocals to roam, evolve and explode to life. Each word exudes something personal and profound, fleeting like a secret shared amongst friends.

In this singular moment, Romane’s wild vocals entwining with the mappings of Gaël’s’ rhythms, the steady, humbling depth of OMA deviates from their balanced collaboration.

That is how, in every moment, they continually find one another, over and over again.
