La Réunion

Votia is the stage name of Réunion singer Marie-Claude Lambert-Philéas, chosen in tribute to her mother, who came from Madagascar and belonged to a family of traditional Maloya musicians. This artist from Réunion Island carries her music with a soft yet powerful voice reminiscent of Erykah Badu and Sharon Jones. Through her lyrics and Maloya music, she touches upon themes of love, mourning, and both the living and the deceased, inviting the public to discover her rich musical universe.
