This contralto singer from the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean works a sophisticated version of maloya, a local percussion-powered genre that combines sufferer lyrics with a dense skein of percussion. Her Creole, Malagasy, Comorian, and Swahili lyrics take on an incantatory aspect as she bangs out rhythms on a kayamn reed rattle. Expect music from her new album, Salem Tradition.
