Layanah grew up in Paris and the Antilles and has English and Mauritian origins. This song is cheerful and set in a classroom so quite a good one to be using with my year nines and Layanah fits their bill of liking music which joins different cultures together. Zouk is the style of music from the Caribbean. Easy to listen to and the sort of music which makes you want to dance. The lyrics for Mon étoile are here.
