"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 sizzler from Sofrito."
