A Creole music and dance Celebration

Embark on a sunny musical experience with a Creole twist, in their captivating rhythms, joyful chants and vibrant island moves.
Salama band is a cosmopolitan collective of Indian Ocean natives and other artists of diverse origins, all sharing a passion for Maloya, a traditional percussion-based music from Reunion Island, which finds its roots in the island's complex and painful history. Today Maloya is associated with ancestry, being Creole and blissful freedom. Salama is fortunate to be pioneering in the sharing of the powerful and magical Maloya in Australia. The comrades in and outside of Maloya proudly bring original musical shows, skillfully blending the traditional and modern, and sharing stories of joy and nostalgia and everything in between.
