"Moun noir!" This is one of the ways you call a friend in the creole spoken language In the Reunion Island, where I was born. Oah is my own stylized way to write noir. The island is cadenced by the Maloya, Sega, Seggae, Zouk and Reggae rhythms and malgaches songs and is always open to the influences of French music, American and British rock, the salsa from South America and the samba from Brazil, the country where I’ve been living for the past ten years.
