Rossy - Madagasikara / Madagascar

about

Madagasikara is how you spell Madagascar the Malagasy way, which is how Rossy would want you to say it too, as he is a strong proponent of the culture and identity of his home Island. Rossy wrote this song because he was shocked to see the way people are treating what he sees as their natural heritage. Although the majority of deforestation took place in the time of French colonisation, the situation is made worse today as forests are cut and set alight for productive but short-lived agriculture. Rossy says it saddens him to see poor people with little choice burn away their future. In 2014, Rossy was elected as a member of the Malagasy parliament, so now we wish him luck in helping turn the situation around.
