Various Artists: Musiche dal Mondo - Madagascar (2000)

This long-out-of-print Italian compilation is a great introduction to Malagasy music, featuring as it does some of the most interesting artists of this isolated and fascinating country’s contemporary scene, like Tarika, D’Gary, Solo Razaf, Madame Masy and many others. A real must for all lovers of inventive neotraditional music. For more info about (and more music of) some of the artists presented in this compilation, click here. For a general introduction to the music of Madagascar click here (English / Italian). Check also Afromix’s and National Geographic’s monographic pages. Have fun!

Very nice & thanks. The guitarists from Madagascar can be stupendously sublime. Readers who like this might also want to give "The Moon and the Banana Tree" (Shanachie 64074)a listen.
