Pepena plans a “small live” musical event in support of New Caledonia

Singer Raimana Bareille was the guest of our Te Hono Rahua section, Saturday May 18. He returned to the events organized by his group, Pepena, which plans to sing in support of Caledonia.

Pepena participated on Saturday evening in the charity concert organized for Polynesian students at the Hoa brewery. A present “important for our young people“, explains Raimana Bareille, performing artist of the group.

Sensitive to the riots which have shaken New Caledonia since May 14, Raimana also announced that his group would mobilize in support of the inhabitants of Caillou, in the form of a “little live“on social media.”We would like to add our stone. (…) The idea is to also be there for them, give a little more positivity in the news feed and a lot of love” specifies the singer. No date has yet been defined. The group “just returned from a tour. We had a great time there, in New Caledonia.

The group’s last album dates from 2023, in a 100% digital version with the objective of “be referenced in world music. It’s a bit complicated to have our place in big groups like jazz and others, but that’s what we would like to bring. Think of another way to offer music” says Raimana who hopes that the resulting remuneration will be “best.”

Since January, Pepena has organized the Coach & Talents event, every last Tuesday of the month, dedicated to performing arts in general. “We would like to bring out artists who are not necessarily able to perform on stage” explains Raimana.

The group closed Saturday evening’s news with music:
