Firmin Viry – Ti Crie A Moin Anin (Reunion, 1970s, Disques Issa)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Ti Crie A Moin Anin“, a incredible deep Folk Jazz Maloya track, one of the major musical genre from Reunion island in the Indian Ocean (with Sega music), that blends together musical roots from France & former slave chants from several African countries such as Zimbabwe (where “Maloya” could be translated by “great sorcerer“), Mozambique (where it could be translated by “incantation“) and Madagascar (where “Maloy Aho” could be translated by “to hurl“).

Prohibited at the end of the 50s by the French administrators of the island, this genre was officially authorized once again in the late 70s, and is listed by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2009.

The song presented here was recorded in the 70s by Firmin Viry, one of the masters of the genre, and is my favorite from him – Enjoy !
