Image: 1607048 Deep, storming Salegy sounds from Madagascar.

Salegy is the electrified updating of the traditional Antsa style from the north-west of the island - 6/8 rhythms, layered with percussion and call-and-response vocals - and the Vetson’ Androy group one of its most popular proponents. From 1978, Mavandeza has the heady urgency of killer Fela - with two women singers out front, psychedelic organ and prowling-lion bass.

The flip is from a decade later, by Malagasy superstar Eusebe Jaojaby - rough and tough dancefloor worries, with a mazy string-line, mash-it-down percussion and lilting flute.

Another sizzler from Sofrito.
