Wake Up Madagascar

July 15, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am

$20 - $25

A magical concert experience with a mission: To end illegal logging in the rainforests of Madagascar.

Featuring Jaojoby, Razia, Charles Kely, Saramba

Singer, songwriter and environmental activist Razia Said spent her childhood in the vanilla-growing region of Madagascar’s northeast coast. After years of living abroad, she returned to discover her country’s landscape ravaged by illegal logging, slash and burn agriculture and the impact of climate change.

The Wake Up Madagascar tour will showcase the same outstanding musicians and dancers who create an uplifting celebration of salegy music. The music that makes Madagascar dance with its heart pounding rhythms, rippling guitars, lush vocal harmonies, bouncy accordion and hip-shaking dance moves, salegy represents the soul and spirit of the island. The featured artists will be supported by an all-star lineup that will total 9 musicians on stage.
