Troupe Gaston Hoareau – Mon Patrie Mon Boucé Manzé (La Reunion, 1976, P.C.R.)

The song presented here, “Mon Patrie Mon Boucé Manzé”, is a beautiful Deep and Raw Maloya track, a musical genre that mixes together traditionnal rhythms, Poetry and political Creole claims that was forbidden by the authorities in the island until 1981.

It that was one the first recordings from Daniel Hoareau (Or Danyèl Waro in Creole langage), one of the most famous musicians from La Reunion, who is still active nowadays, and it was recorded during the 4th congress of the Communist Political Party from Reunion Island in 1976 – Enjoy !
