Donné Roberts is a passionate performer.  When he hits the stage he carries with him an energy that immediately exhilarates the crowd - even if they've never heard his music before.  Donné performs mainly in Malagasy his mother tongue from his birthplace of Madagascar. 

Yet this never proves to be a barrier to the audience, providing living proof that music truly does transcend language.

A lot of people missed Donne Roberts’ Wavelength debut last May, and that was too bad, since the guitarist and his band took us all to school.

 The lone act of the night devoid of signifiers like "indie" and "punk rock," Donné Roberts was invigorating. The prolific and eclectic musician presented a unique amalgam of funk and calypso that had an unsuspecting audience swaying in appreciation of his Afro-tinged, multicultural musical stew.
