Les Voix du Tambour

Invited to the Books & Music Festival 2017

PHILO & LES VOIX DU TAMBOUR is an artistic and pedagogic project combining tradition, improvisation and composition to fascinate, question and touch the public as artists like Eugène MONA, GUEM or Danyèl WARO has done…In Martinique, Guadeloupe, Guiana, and Réunion, the DRUM, “dug wood” or barrel, that may be Djouba, Ka, Konga, Roulèr, Atabak, is the sounding board of this same history! It is the symbol of cultural resistance facing any forms of oppression such as slave trades or colonization. LeBèlè, Gwoka, Kassé-kô, Maloya… these choreographic, vocal and instrumental alchemies pass down the history, are witnesses of the history.
