Description

Deep, storming Salegy sounds from Madagascar.
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-lion 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 ace from Sofrito.
