The story of this band actually begins back in 2011, with a bunch of friends meeting in the streets of Pointe aux Sables, in the North of Mauritius.

They decide to gather in the neighborhood and start up some kind of musical band, summing up their respective talents. « Les Inkonus » were born.

They first worked on covers, adding a personal cheerful touch to the revivals, but eventually developped their own punchy repertoire. Their festive style is constantly re-inventing and renewing itself, combining touches of Bossa-Nova, Reggae, Zouk, Sega, and Blues, with disconcerting ease.

Vocals offer rich polyphonic lines, while the rhythmic structure goes deep with a preference given to acoustic and unplugged instruments. This brings a fresh and classy touch to the whole project, even adding an extra taste of freedom.

For quite some time they mainly focused on live shows in their region, until they took the opportunity to record their first studio album, entitled “TWA“. The release got very good reviews in the industry and Mauritian audience expressed their enthusiastic support. Second album is being prepared in 2020.
