  • 1. Vetson' Androy – Mavandeza
  • 2. Jaojoby Eusèbe – Taratasy Maitso

Salegy is the electrified updating of the traditional Antsa style from the north-west of the island — 6/8 rhythms, layered with percussion and call-and-response vocals — and the Vetson’ Androy group one of its most popular proponents. From 1978, Mavandeza has the heady urgency of killer Fela — with two women singers out front, psychedelic organ and prowling  bass. The flip is from a decade later, by Malagasy superstar Eusebe Jaojaby — rough and tough dancefloor worries, with a mazy string-line, mash-it-down percussion and lilting flute.  Another sizzler from Sofrito!
