ABOUT REBELLE
ReBelle is a formidable musical force conceived in love, rebellion and the evocative musical vigor of Emmanuel Manou and Kalpana Devi.   

Their eloquent musical composition runs along limbs of Rasta, elements of Jahzz and folk, poetic insurgence and ardent rhythms. 
 
Kalpana and Manou’s energetic voices persuade a human race toward potent change-making. Nothing remains the same after a ReBelle experience. If you want to dance as you dream; chant on the move; find yourself in the compelling atmosphere of origin, then come to ReBelle.
They will more than meet you there.
They’ll take you there.
