Christine Salem – Maloya revisited – La Réunion, France

Christine Salem is charismatic and bewitching. She is one of those rare women performing Maloya, traditional ritual music from the island of Réunion. Accompanied by her favourite kayamb, a type of rattle, Salem sings Creole, Malagasy, Comorian and Swahili poetry in a deep voice. Maloya invokes ancestral spirits: here Asian and African rhythms meld to echo the story of an island at the crossroads of the world.
In her latest album, Mi Larg pa lo kor, Christine Salem has forged a path to freedom – a freedom that is radiant, solemn and just; a freedom that is all-conquering, nourished by spiritual searching as well as her path as a musician; a freedom open to the other, made up of sharing and enthusiasm.
