Polynés’îles : Tikahiri – Paumotu Black Angels
A report by Brigitte Olivier
The Tikahiri are well known in Polynesia for their rock music stamped with the emblematic pair’s specific identity: the Salmon brothers.
They express themselves through pure hard rock which doesn’t fit the Polynesian music clichés. Who are those two strange- looking “bad boys” ?
Brigitte Olivier and Patita Savéa have met them during a family weekend in Fakarava.
“We have discovered two unaffected, family-loving persons, sticking to traditional values, Brigitte Olivier said. We filmed this chronicle made up of beautiful moments on an atoll, in the family house. We felt the experience was intense and original”.
Interspersed with images of the past that remind us of the tattooers-musicians’ main stages, this report reveals an original close-knit family picture.
