Chatting with singer & composer Rouhangeze about her upcoming album and her influences

Published: Sep 05 2021

Chris is joined by Mauritian singer and composer Rouhangeze for a fascinating conversation about her musical path from an Indian Ocean island to Europe.

We chat about her creative partnerships with Tomasz Bura and Linley Marthe and her 5-year journey to write, record and produce her new upcoming album 'evasio'.

We explore the spiritual dimensions of her music and still find time to consider Chris Potter's piano skills, Moogs and fish curry!

Rouhangeze's album recommendations include:

  • I Took Up The Runes by Jan Garbarek (1990) released on ECM

  • Slave to the Rhythm by Grace Jones (1985) released on Manhattan, Island

  • Passages by Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass (1990) released on Private Music
