Biography

Led by Patrice Moullet, Alpes was founded in 1970 with Catherine Ribeiro as the lead singer. A very original band, highly prolific throughout the ’70s and still alive. Their music is rather experimental and hard to define and involves folk, psychedelia and improvisation. Patrice Moullet is the inventor of several musical instruments amongst which include the “Cosmophone” and the “Percuphone”. In a similar vocal style to Brigitte Fontaine, Catherine Ribeiro’s low voice tone may also evoke Nico at times and is theatrical and declamatory. There’s often an intense dramatic tension in the singing.
