A musical interlude on Reunion Island is worth the detour !

If we utter the words exotic, sun, music, sega, maloya, festive atmosphere and a whole lot of good fun, what do you think of? Of Reunion Island of course!
A musical interlude on Reunion Island is worth the detour. During my holiday on Reunion Island, I had some great experiences discovering the wide diversity of landscapes, traditions, cultures and the music of Reunion in the tropics.

Sounds of Reunion Island

(and from further afield too !)

The programme of events is full of world music and sounds that combine séga and maloya. Iconic artists and groups from Reunion Island (Oussanoussava, Baster, Manyan…), from mainland France, from abroad and from the Indian Ocean, all perform on stage and in bars, restaurants, rondavelles*, funfairs, etc. And you might just run into a well-known jazz, soul, electro, R&B, pop, reggae, or classical music artist, or even an international DJ. There’s something for all musical tastes.
Just like me, add a bit of extra sunshine to your holiday!

Kabar: a festive cultural event that is generally held in big towns and is entirely devoted to Créole traditions in all shapes and sizes (an evening of music and traditional dancing, séga, maloya, sirandanes, fairy tales, etc.).
Rondavelle: a small circular construction that resembles an enclosed bandstand, on the seaside where concerts are held.
