Rouhangeze's album “EVASIO” is set to be released in 2022.
On this album, she invites, collaborates, and develops her compositions with some of the world’s finest musicians.
Among them are tabla player Aref Durvesh, multi-award-winning guitarist Antonio Forcione, bass virtuoso Linley Marthe, percussionist singer-songwriter and pioneer of Sega music Menwar, percussionist Kersley Sham, pianist-composer Tomasz Bura, multi-award-winning producer, instrumentalist, and songwriter Eric Appapoulay, and the visionary percussionist Bernhard Schimpelsberger.
Exploring the traditional rhythms of the Sega, which she sings in her mother tongue, Mauritian Creole, her compositions bask in the colours of Africa and India and are influenced by her love of Jazz and the marriage between electronic and organic sounds.
"Nature. Imaginary worlds. Multiculturalism. Poetry. I understand that meaningful music cannot be confined to specific genres.
So I wrote and sang in a variety of styles, cross-pollinating my childhood influences with more contemporary elements and sounds.”
