RAZIA SAID

Zebu Nation

2010-04-06

Razia Said has lived in many countries over the course of her life and even holds a doctorate in pharmacology (received in France), but it is her native Madagascar that has always inspired her musical work. In this effort, she returns to the land of her birth to draw attention to the "slash and burn" agricultural practices that have ravaged her native land. Most of the themes of "Zebu Nation" are environmentally directed, lovingly yet pointedly delivered. "Slash and Burn" is the only English language cut in the set, and has an Indian-music feel. The up-tempo numbers are "Babonao," "Yoyoyo," "Salamalama Aby" and the closer "Mifohaza." Michael J. 03/10 W-Madagascar
