Biography

This is music from the Indian Ocean. It has been a witness to the history of the Creole’s soul. This music —with its stars, Marcelino Chaton, Babalé, Bruno Mooken, Roger and Marie Josée Clency,Jean-Claude Gaspar, Serge Lebrasse—explores the various sounds of an island (Mauritius) that is at the crossroads of various influences that force us to remember or suggest an identity.

The Group was created in 1988. Its name comes from Cassi, a suburb of Port-Louis (the capital city of the island). It became popular in 1993 with its tape “zenfants perdi simé” that created a real tidal wave.

Its led singer, Désirée François won the “Star Show ‘93” contest organized by MBC, the local TV station, in 1993. Proclaimed as “Group of the Year” in 1994. Since then, Cassiya has gone from success to success with a “Sega” made richer with a variety of very inspired melodies (“Ici cote nou été,” in 1995, “Naryé la efasé” in 1997).

Its singers’ fresh and insistent voices that sometimes become tonic have the power of spicing, with Creole sauce, a music made to soothe the heart and inspire to dance.
