Donné Roberts On Summer Tour in Canada
Published June 28, 2006

Donné Roberts will be seen and heard with his own band at major music festivals across the country, starting with the Montreal International Jazz Festival at a one-night only free concert on July 2, 7:30p.m. at the Scène Bell. Roberts and his band will then perform in Toronto, Owen Sound, Winnipeg and Dawson City this July and August.

The summer festival performances follow the recent release of his CD, Rhythm Was Born. Roberts’ rich musical sound is grounded in his Madagascar heritage, infused with his experiences and sensibilities from living in Russia, France and Canada.

Born in Madagascar, Donné moved with his family to Russia as a young boy. At 15 years old, he joined an African band touring Russia and the Ukraine playing soukous, zouk, reggae and funk.

He recorded his first album following his family’s move to France, embarking on a tour of Madagascar in 1989, opening for the celebrated Madagascar band Nanahary. After a return to study and obtain his degree in English and Russian linguistics, Donné formed the Russian Malagasy band Mo-bratia. Following a performance in Red Square, Donné gained both the attention of the media and a record deal with Polygram Records. Donné’s CD Rhythm Was Born was released in February 2006.
