2003 release. Tulear is a city the remote, hot, and dusty southwest of the Indian Ocean island of Madagascar. At night, when the burning day has cooled a little, tsapiky bands play at wild open-air dances in every neighborhood of the city. Over belting singers and tireless drummers, fearsome guitarists scatter dazzling fractured lines of notes. Crowds of revelers, most of them swigging from bottles of toka (the local rum), dance all night. Nobody sleeps. Tulear never sleeps. The recordings collected in this album were made in Tulear specifically for this Earthworks CD. Includes tracks by Jean Noel, Tsy An-Jaza, Los Bally, Jeff Nhoré, Teta, Rivo Doza, Said-Alexis, Nolave, Zerex, Tsapiky 2000.
