The tube-zither valiha is one of the pinnacles of Malagasy music, typical in its mix of Southeast Asian and African ingredients. This re-release of the '60s recordings of the instrument's best-known master is much the best of Globestyle's Malagasy issues, and a worthy substitute for the vanished Ocora valiha album (which also, incidentally, included cuts by Rakotozafy).

Valiha Malaza by Rakotozafy on Globestyle. He played a souped-up, enlarged version of the island's national instrument the valiha (a multi-stringed box-shaped zither also known as the marovany). This hot-rodding increased the range and sound of the instrument and gave him a sound not unlike a bluesman's national steel guitar. He had previously recorded for ethnomusicologists, the local record company (DiscoMad) and the national radio-. musicians revered him, but when it came to pinning his story down, there was never the same story twice.
