SAODAJ

IF REUNION ISLAND IS A CROSSROAD WHERE THE CULTURES OF THE WORLD MEET, SAODAJ COULD BE ONE OF ITS SYMBOLS.

After 300 concerts in Reunion Island and abroad, Marie Lanfroy, Jonathan Itéma and their group have devoted themselves to the production of their new album: “Laz” (age in Reunionese Creole). The writing of this album combines the poetry of the Creole and French languages, traditional Maloya percussion and classical instruments such as the cello. Emancipation, justice, resilience: with passion and humility, the texts are indignant, the texts dream.

 

Saodaj’s committed poetry deals with fundamental themes such as the thirst for justice, the struggle for freedom, the duty to remember and to pass on. Their musical creation is experienced as a necessity: “It helps us to accept the world as it is offered to us today, with its beauties and uglinesses, without resigning ourselves to fatality.

STAGE FEEDBACK

“We had a wonderful time with Saodaj, magnificent music and songs, and great artists! The audience was delighted too. A lovely, warm evening!” Marie Maubrey-Picado – Les Docks, Cahors, March 2023

 

“Marie is very dynamic on stage, the instrumentation is original, and the vocals and compositions are spellbinding. You can feel the complicity of the musicians, who don’t hesitate to give their all to the audience. It was a really great concert, and the audience was delighted.” Maryline Bailly – Jammin’Juan, Juan Les Pins, August 2023

 

“This Saodaj concert was much more than a concert! A moment of magic, of encounters, of fusion of rhythms and hearts. The Bordeaux public had never had the chance to see them before, and we’re so happy to have been able to welcome them!
We felt their generosity in their lyrics, in their embodiment of the music they play. It all came together with our project, our team and the audience in a very touching way. I could go on and on, but as you can see, we loved it!” Marion Chassat – Jardin l’Ephémère, Bègles, August 2023

 

“Saodaj were very well received by the audience and I had “goose bumps” at the concert. A good time!” Jordi Preußer – Initiative Folklorefest, Krefeld DE, August 2023
