Kabary, 2012; Kalou Bandé, 2014; Amboni, 2019
Kaloubadya, representing the maloya style from Reunion island, explore their roots whilst keenly embracing the spirituality this deeply rhythmic music has in seeking contact with its African ancestors.
Kaloubadya’s stated ambition is to shake the plate. Voices swell and soar, whilst at the same time being raucous, vulnerable and powerful.
The group is about to release their third album, ‘Amboni’, meaning ‘Up’.
