Ann O’aro


Ann performs stark and bluesy songs of rage and hope, tackling taboos and her personal history. Backed by simple percussion and trombone, she transforms the Maloya tradition: the music of the sugarcane fields worked by slaves on Réunion Island, a former French colony off the east African coast.
