First song is dedicated to Sylvestre Randafison, the last of the Ny Antsaly trio, who died July 12th 2003 in Antananarivo. He was 75 and was the youngest member of this mythical and traditional valiha group. With his brother Rémi Randafison, they make the whole world discover the valiha, the very traditional instrument of Madagascar.

Interview:
First part (among three) of the talks with Voninahitsy Jean Eugène.
V.J.E. is certainly one of the most turbulent malagasy representatives. He has been jailed six months by Ratsiraka because of the "truth" he told about the "floating bridge", the former President brought from Ukraine.
Nowadays, he is opposed to the government, and even to his own party about a lot of things, but he knows really how to get supported by his electors in all these battles. A "malagasy democrat" indeed!
