Hip Deep Salegy Video!
Salegy is the signature dance music of northern Madagascar, and one of the island nation's great musical exports. No surprise, salegy is a major focus of Afropop's "Hip Deep in Madagascar" series. This video tells the salegy story, and captures some magical moments from Afropop's 2014 field work in Madagascar. The video features salegy king Jaojoby and his family band. It was filmed by Banning Eyre and Sean Barlow, and edited by Michal Shapiro. Click here to hear the radio program "Hip Deep in Madagascar: Songs of the North."
