Music of Madagascar : New Releases

Show Notes:
With new releases from Rajery, Vakoka, and Jaojoby, a 10-year retrospective from Tarika, and appearances in the Northwest by D'Gary and Jaojoby, what better time to survey the music of this enigmatic island off the African coast? Dance music, folk music, remixes, salegy, valiha, marovany, kabosy, jejy voatavo. For background, see Ian Anderson's Madagascar discography, or the Music of Madagascar. Help support Malagasy music by supporting Hanitra's Valiha High. Or if you're very excited by Malagasy music, then plan to attend the first Indian Ocean World Music Festival, which will take place in Antananarivo, Madagascar April 9-11, 2005.

This week we also paid tribute to South African musical icon Sipho Gumede, who died this week.

Most of the music played on Spin the Globe is available at cdRoots.com or CD Universe or the calabash.
