Salama band is a collective of Indian Ocean natives (La Réunion, Mauritius, Seychelles, Madagascar) and other artists of diverse origins (New Caledonia, South Africa, Israel, Brazil, Benin, Congo and Mali) all sharing a passion for Maloya.
Maloya is a percussion-based cultural treasure with a complex and painful history, born out of slavery, developed clandestinely and banned by the French authorities until 1981. Today Maloya is associated with ancestry, Creolisation and blissful freedom.
Salama (meaning in Malagasy language ‘How are you? I am good! healthy, wealthy) is grateful to be pioneering in the sharing of Maloya in Australia. Experience powerful live music and dance, catchy melodies and upbeat rhythms, singing in Malagasy and Creole languages. Join us for an authentic celebration of freedom!
