The accordion was introduced to Madagascar by sailors in the early 19th century. Since then it had become an integral part of the local culture. Régis Gizavo, one of the last custodians of the island's traditional music heritage, has developed a unique accordion-playing style, reworking the traditional folk music of the island for modern ears.
Unfortunately the quality of this video is not very good, but I have been unable to find a better version. Anyway, here is Régis performing "Ho Anareo" (For You) which originally appeared on his album "Samy Olombelo" in 2000. The album is currently out of print, but according to Amazon UK you can obtain a brand new copy for the small fortune of £64 ($106 at the time of this posting)! Fortunately it is also available as an mp3 download for a much more reasonable $1.30 per song, or $11.50 for the whole album :) Enjoy!
