The talented Sami Pageaux Waro, incredible multi-instrumentalist from Reunion Island represents the new generation of "Griot" who master the art of Loop. Sami Waro projects into the future Trance, Maloya and World Music with his trio. The griot in Creole, means "the transmitter", the keeper of oral tradition.
The thirty- year old virtuoso has performed with his father Danyel Waro but also Emily Loizeaux and Nathalie Natiembé. His work of auto-looping from a set of instruments more than cosmopolitan (kora, Likembe, Cajon, Kayamb Roulèr, Daf, Arabic, Persian and Réunion Island percussions), accompanied by the multi-blower Luc Joly (Sax tenor, Carinet Contre-Alto, flutes) and sound designer Brice Nauroy, is more than impressive and goes to show that Lo Griyo has a passion for Trance.
