Just winner of the 6th Indian Ocean Music Prize, Kaloune is making a place for herself among the singular voices of Reunion. Between prayer, declamation and song, somewhere on the border between these different modes of expression, KALOUNE builds a new Reunionese word, able to bring the memory of which his writing is the bearer to today's consciousness. . Because this young artist is first and foremost an author, a poet tackling themes such as women, history and spirituality.
Accompanied by a mbira, an instrument of trance ceremonies in Zimbabwe, she speaks on stage her musical poetry which sweeps the vast field of Creole identity, and invents a contemporary and original orality.
KALOUNE reconnects with its African origins and is part of an experimental journey.
