Zazakèly is the depiction of my musical career: Born on Reunion Island, where I grew up amid the sounds of maloya drums and songs, I then travelled through West Africa, Eastern Europe and Colombia to learn and master the music of these regions of the world.

Mainly rooted in the maloya musical tradition, this concert tells the story of my native island, a tiny piece of land on the Silk Road in the middle of the Indian Ocean. An island that resonates with music from all over the world, an island where humans live in peace…
