Donné Roberts is a passionate performer. When he hits the stage he carries with him an energy that immediately exhilarates the crowd – even if they’ve never heard his music before.
Donné performs mainly in Malagasy his mother tongue from his birthplace of Madagascar.
Yet this never proves to be a barrier to the audience, providing living proof that music truly does transcend language.
