Métisse – Boom Boom Ba
From the 2000 Album My Fault
Métisse is an Irish/African Soul/Electronica band, formed by former Chapter House member Skully, and Aïda, a singer/choreographer from Côte d’Ivoire. They formed in Toulouse, France. The band’s name is the French word for ‘mixture’, and its music is a mix of African, Celtic, soul and electronic music. Song lyrics often feature a mixture of Dioula, English and French words.
The band achieved initial success with the single “Sousoundé”. Its next hit, “Boom Boom Bâ” was the featured title track in Madonna’s film The Next Best Thing and was played several times in the Showtime TV series Dead Like Me. It is also in heavy rotation on the international radio program ‘Coast to Coast AM’, whenever founder Art Bell makes one of his rare appearances. In addition, “Nomah’s Land” was played in the Dead Like Me second season episode “The Shallow End”.
Métisse’s music has been licensed for numerous television, film productions and advertising campaigns. They have two albums, My Fault and Nomah’s Land, though their music has been licensed for several compilation discs
