TOKO TELO

Toko Telo (Madagascar)
The best of Madagascar: Soulful traditions reinvented with sublime artistry

A dazzling all-star trio from the unique and exceptionally rich musical island of Madagascar, Toko Telo features the soulful vocals of Monika Njava and stunning guitar tapestry from D’Gary and Joël Rabesolo (the latter joining the trio after original member Regis Gizavo tragically passed away last summer). Honoured at home and acclaimed abroad, these heroes of Madagascan music come together with Toko Telo (‘group of three’) to revisit their shared southern roots. Interpreting traditional musical styles like tsapikyjihe and beko with sublime musicianship and artistry, Toko Telo provide the perfect introduction to some of the best music that Madagascar can offer.
