MENA (SNAIL RECORDS)
This year "2008", Kilema and his band celebrate their "tenth" anniversary, and what better way than to release a new album? "Mena" (Red) digs deeper into Kilema's cultural roots, and reflects somewhat sadly on our new, globalised world and the role of the media in portraying nothing but the worst of our planet.
Despite this perspective, Kilema expresses his music with an irrepressibly cheerful, positive spirit, the same way the Malagasy people deal with the difficulties of their daily lives in a country which has so little, and yet enjoys life so much.
Kilema recorded "Mena" in Belgium with Madagascan and Andalusia musicians, as well as his brother Nesta and his "white brother" Pedro Delgado, from whom he has been inseparable since 2000.
