Music thrives in Mauritius; Kaz’Out, a work of art…

by Rodney Napaul

Concerts, exhibitions, plays, shows, festivals; Mauritius is full of cultural events. One good example is Kaz’Out. Over the past 6 years, on November 1st (public holiday), this festival has gathered about twenty local and international artists. The event can last one day or more, depending on the year. This year, it will be a full day followed by an after-party on Saturday. An electrifying festival, a lively atmosphere, all set in spectacular scenery…

Get out of “lakaz”

The word “lakaz” in Creole means house. The idea behind this festival is to step out of your house to discover, share and open up to new horizons. Kaz’Out is a production of Lively Up Ltd.

It is designed to professionalise and develop the music economy in Mauritius. It gives local artists the chance to perform on stage where they can make a living out of their art and free up some time for their endeavours. The presence of foreign artists is not only a plus for the public but also an opportunity for local artists to foster a professional cultural network.

2019 on stage

This year, Kaz’Out is spread over a day followed by an after-party, bursting with colours. The show will be held on Friday at “L’Aventure du Sucre”, Beau-Plan. The event will continue on Saturday next to? the swimming pool of “Mystik Life Style” hotel, Mont Choisy.
