Toko Telo Madagascar
The name translates as ‘group of three’, a humbly modest description of what is in effect a Malagasy super-group. Individually the guitarist and singer D’Gary, accordionist Régis Gizavo and female vocalist Monika Njava – celebrated as the ‘national diva’ – are the three biggest stars in Madagascar.
Together they constitute an unbeatable summit meeting of all that is finest about Malagasy music. On their recent debut album Toy Raha Toy they reinterpret the island’s rich panoply of traditional musical styles such as tsapiky, jihe and beko with sublime artistry and exquisite virtuosity. On stage the chemistry between them promises to be explosive.http://aniorecords.com/portfolio/toko-telo/
