The nomination form said that the Maison des Civilisations et de l’Unité Réunionnaise has an essential role to play in the safeguarding, transmission and enhancement of maloya, as well as other vernacular practices. «The inclusion of maloya will be a mark of recognition, at the highest international cultural level, of a fundamental aspect of the vernacular culture of Reunion – for a long time marginalized and looked down on by the official authorities», UNESCO said.
