Story

Thank you for supporting not just this music project, but all the wonderful children of Akany Avoko. This musical adventure began in Oct. 2011 as part of a collaboration with a great partner, Paint-a-Future. With their financial support, our children have enjoyed instrumental and vocal music lessons for 1 year so far.

And those lessons have been taught by international Malalgasy music group, Tarika Sammy. The group is led by Sammy Andriamalalaharijaona and features traditional instruments with a touch of modern styling. The CD features 10 orginal songs composed by Sammy. Our children may only be doing vocals on the CD, but they have also been learning 2 traditional Malagasy instruments throughout the year as well: the valiha (zither) and the kabosy (small guitar).

We hope you enjoy music. And thanks to your kind donation, our children can continue to learn and love traditional Malagasy music, dance and arts.
