Manao ahoana Mrs Mika?
Thank you for the welcome (tongasoa) message and to have launched this space. I hope that many people will know more about Mada through it. With its different aspects, the good and the bad also (we have any to hide, lol)...

Yes, I wrote that I play guitar, but not that I am a composer :D
Et encore moins un chanteur. It is true that I love music : Afro beat, jazz, blues, rock and roll, heavy metal and above all Malagasy music, which is very rich. Culturally we are a crossroads of vibrations : musique des iles (zouk, sega, maloya, reggae), Africa, Arabia, Europe, USA, India, Indonesia. All that influenced our feelings. Nous sommes comme les éléphants : we have big ears.And as said Leopold Sedar Senghor, the former Chairman of Senegal : "the Malagasy dance with Asian hands and African feet".
Thanks to "You Tube" I will upload video clips.
Yesterday I tried to upload songs but as you know Iarivo (Tana for foreigners) has not the ADSL (c'est encore un luxe, vivement le "backbone"). Mais je vais encore essayer aujourdhui.
I know that you are impatient to listen to music.
En attendant voici un hors-d'oeuvre. Enjoy this Rossy's clip.

Portez-vous bien. Take care.

Manao ahoana Mika? "Misaotra betsaka" for the nice comments.
The photo is sundown at Amborovy beach (Mahajanga/Majunga, North-West coast)). I have shot it one week ago.
It was by surfing on Ning to seek African networks that I have found this space.
Donia est le festival des musiques des isles. , Il se déroule tous les ans à Nosy-Be since 10 years.
It is gathering the musicians of the isles of Indian ocean especially : Comoros, la Reunion, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mayotte, Seychelles. And also Est African or Southern African guests. Un grand rendez-vous de la musique.
Another international rendez-vous"Madajazzcar" happens every year in october, in Antananarivo. The best jazz musicians of Germany, Swiss, France, USA attend this festival.

"Tsara ve ny dia?" means "how was the jorney?". And you gave the reply

Manaova zoma mahafinaritra (Happy Friday). As my world clock says that it is 09:37 pm in Honolulu good night (matoria tsara)
The picture is a Mahajanga colonial house with the pousse-pousse (rickshaw?) at the "premier plan" waiting for a "client".
