Ever since her first album – Dig Dig (2018) – Gwendoline Absalon has been considered as an ambassador of Reunion’s contemporary music and culture.

Over the years, she has sharpenned her very personal style, with compositions fluctuating between Jazz, Soul and traditional Maloya.

Following the example of the great ladies who inspired her work (such as Billie Holiday, Césaria Evora, Christine Salem …) Gwendoline proves to be charismatic yet feminine and true to herself.

With her 2nd album, « Vangasay », named after an exotic citrus fruit with medicinal properties, she offers a captivating Creole Pop set, that swings powerfully and will surely awaken an imperious desire to jiggle around.

Under the artistic leadership of arranger and pianist Hervé Celcal, the band switches between traditional and modern tunes, using alternatively acoustic and electric devices. With them, Gwendoline offers a show full of delightful surprises, as beneficial for your body and soul as an actual vangasay fruit.
