This friday 08.10 a special Maloya concert @ Muziekpubique by La Reunion group LiNDiGo
It has been twenty years since the group LiNDiGo, led by Olivier Araste, has been cited as one of the most popular Maloya groups. However, his approach is neither locked in nostalgia nor in the shackles of a sterile memory. Foundations serve the momentum, and roots build the future. Their motto: “When you know where you’re coming from, you know where you’re going”, their style: Maloya Power. They already have more than 1000 concerts and six albums to their credit.
On stage, their jubilant trance, as distinctive as it opens up to new horizons, contaminates all audiences. Lindigo is a love story for this dear pebble called Réunion, for its land from which rhythm springs, its sky which offers dreams and its ocean which leads to the discovery of other worlds. It is a love story for music, this maloya that unites ancestors and their grandchildren, which gives men and women the strength of pure feelings, adventure and sharing. Lindigo is generous fellowship, a celebration of life present, past and future.
Warmup & afterparty in the foyer in collaboration with Rebel Up and Drache Musicale.
Limited to 200 places, best reserve your ticket here.

Eighty-year-old Dona Onete, the great singer of the Amazon culture, shows with her new album Rebujo that quality is not an age. While the Brazilian government is turning its back on the minorities in Brazil, Onete embraces diversity – especially in its state of Pará – which, in its opinion, is “the most diverse in Brazil with its mix of colors, rhythms and tastes”. Dona Onete, a former teacher, political activist for indigenous cultures and culture minister, started her music career ten years after she had officially “retired”. She first encouraged people with her challenging texts.
At her concerts she wraps everyone up with carimbós, dance music with a strong African groove, and bangues, dancing with a ska-like rhythm; supplemented with cumbia, brega and samba.
warmup & afterparty support by Rebel Up SebCat & Drache Musicale. and during, a dance demonstration by Patricia Tambeur.
