Candela's Acoustic Salegy
Candela is a young accordionist/composer in Diego Suarez, Madagascar. He's performing here with fellow students and instructors from the Zomare school of music and dance, a fine example of rootsy, acoustic salegy music. The woman who dances is Candela’s mother. The song is encouraging young Malagasy to protect the environment. This song was filmed and recorded by Banning Eyre and Sean Barlow in Diego Suarez in May 2014. The clip was edited by Michal Shapiro.
