Tiloun x Elida Almeida
Creation · Reunion Island / Cape Verde
Friday June 7th · 20:00 · Filaos

Two generations, two islands separated by nearly 10 000 km, no one would have ever thought that Elida Almeida from Cape Verde and Tiloun from Reunion would have ever met. However 2 styles of music both dedicated to their mother island, 2 rhythms invented by the slaves against the yoke of colonialism, both music and dance, sung in creole : maloya, funaná and batuque possess numerous similarities. It’s from these family ties that the two artists decided to put together their minds and imagination to come up with this new creation that was officially premiered at the Kriol Jazz Festival in Praia !
