"Maloya Maniér Fanm" (Kreol language) means "Maloya Made by Women".
Simangavole is a women-only group that powerfully performs traditional maloya, the original rebel music as created by African slaves who were brought to Reunion Island.
Simangavole’s song lyrics draw from raw emotions and feelings. Their high energy performances deliver an unforgettable experience. The group has performed at many international festivals including Printemps de Bourges (France), Babel Med Music (France), Musiques Métisse (France), Okarina Festival Bled (Slovenia), Summer Sobota (Slovenia), Woodford Folk Festival (UK), Island Vibe Festival (Australia), Singout Sista (Australia), Femmes Funk Festival (New Caledonia), Fest Napuan (Vanuatu) and Independence Day (Mauritius).
This will be the group’s first visit to Zanzibar and Tanzania, returning the rebel music of maloya closer to its original roots.With thanks to PRMA
