‘Takanini’ is a group of Marquesan musicians with a unique style of reggae. It sings their culture, asserts their language and values. Its message is somewhat disturbing and illuminating through the evocative power of its music. Torn between tradition and modernity, the members of Takanini sing about their difficulties in forming their identity and condemn the slow acculturation of their people.
