cd cover Danyèl Waro
Monmon (Buda Musique)
cdRoots Code: buda-860309

Danyel Waro has always stayed faithful to the acoustic tradition of Maloya of Reunion Island. As a musician and poet, he sings Creole with unparalleled emotion: 'Maloya, for me, is first and foremost about the word. I'm looking for the cadence, the image, the rhythm in the word. Maloya has put me in touch with Reunion, with its people, with our language.'

Tom Orr writes in RootsWorld: 'Alternately driving and lilting, the maloya music of the Indian Ocean's Reunion Island is likewise deeply traditional while reserving the right to be thoroughly contemporary where topical matters are concerned. Danyel Waro, he of the wispy beard and otherworldly bespectacled gaze, has been for decades maloya's leading musical ambassador. '



"Le mauvaise reputation"


More info:
Danyèl Waro est toujours resté fidèle à la tradition acoustique du maloya, le blues de l’île de la Réunion, et il en est le "héros" reconnu. Musicien et poète, il sait faire chanter le créole avec une émotion sans pareille : "Pour moi le maloya, c'est d'abord le mot", précise-t-il. "Je cherche la cadence, l'image, le rythme dans le mot. Le maloya m'a remis en accord avec la Réunion, avec les gens, avec notre langue".

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
