It’s with a smile to the lips that Yoan puts himself at his guitar to perform the new single from his album Dimé Nwa Gueté, A turn of phrase that gives away the humour of his lyrics. The young songwriter is also inspired by reality, inspired by his father who initiated him to music, mainly to the culture of the local sega and of jazz, whose resonances we find in his album, a hybrid mixture of styles that the singer with the soul-drenched voice describes as an amazing experience.

Child of Cassis, peripheral and populous ghetto of Port-Louis, Menwar has never stopped singing: he has gone through life defending the sega, music of swinging beats, musical heritage of the Mascarene Islands, and he has been able to spread its popularity beyond the Indian Ocean. With his black hands – the meaning of “Menwar” – he has also founded a music school that teaches the ravanne, tambourine-like instrument integral to the sega, through which he is able to transmit a skill which runs the risk of getting lost to history. He is a consummate artist, armed with both social integrity and emotional power.
