Elisouma

Information

Country:

Comoros Islands

Ballads from the Moon Islands, starring three exceptional musicians from different generations and different islands of the Comoros:

 

‘Soubi’ Athoumane Soubira with the Dzendze, the Comorian harp from Moheli;

 

Guitarist Eliasse Ben Joma, born on Grande Comore then moved to Mayotte with the rhythms of the twarab, the maloya, sega, shigoma, mgodro;

 

And Mwegne M’madi with the Gambusi lute.

They sing about everyday life in the Comoros which, despite the beautiful beaches of white sand, palm trees and fields of fragrant vanilla which you will find there, is not always a paradise.
