Maloya - the Forbidden Slave Music and Dance of Réunion Island, is a region of France and an island
in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar and 175 km (109 mi) southwest of Mauritius.
The 2020 tour of Simangavole will be historical for this acclaimed all female Maloya group. It
would be the first tour of its kind for the United States profiling the role of women in the form, programming both the music and dance.
Five Musicians and one Manager (Travel party of six) can secure flights from Reunion Island to the United States through local area support. This reflects a significant cost savings with only local domestic costs and fees required.

Representatives from the Pryce Centre toured to
the USA in January and April 2019 to further develop links and networks with collegiate companies in California, New York and Philadelphia.
From this comes a vision to create future performance opportunities, faculty exchange and talent pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Artists. They will be returning to North America in January 2020 to form part of the celebration of Black Dance Legacy between Australia and the United States.
