The repertoire is halfway between written music and improvised music, in order to create an "imaginary folklore" rooted in the tradition of Reunion maloya.

Trans Kabar, a Maloya rock band, works on the mystical rites of Reunion Island to develop a music of "trans maloya". They are inspired by the Servis Kabaré, a festive ritual of slave rituals made to communicate with the ancestors through music, songs and dances.
Often rejected, forbidden, almost forgotten, this rite has survived in hiding. Trans Kabar brings it up to date. Here, musicians and public form an indissociable whole; music becomes an excuse to converse.
In Trans Kabar, musicians rely on the traditional songs of maloya and the traditional tunes of Servis Kabare. Spontaneous, the four artists leave a large place to improvisation. Maloya rock rhythms that are sculpted around the voice and kayamb to plunge into the laments of an island blues.
