Danyèl Waro’s monmon at the Top of the July 2017 Transglobal World Music Chart

Danyèl Waro plays traditional acoustic Maloya, the genre known as the blues of Reunion. He sings in the Creole language.

Maloya, for me, is first and foremost about the word,” he says. “I’m looking for the cadence, the image, the rhythm in the word. Maloya has put me in touch with Réunion, with its people, with our language.”
