A Rossy masterpiece, it is a delight
07/26/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Rossy produced this album to be a soundtrack for a PBS Nature show about Madagascar. It is a delight from an artistic point of view. All of these songs has a certain quality of quiet, calm and peacefullness to it. The deliberate use of many uniquely Malagasy instruments and tunes makes it sound very unique. These are all very good songs and pass my ( high) standard. My favorites are Madagasikara, Kila, Mazava Atsinanana, Midona, May, Salegy, Betsiboka and Soa for their appeal to save the endangered species of Madagascar and the awareness that they long to instill in the Malagasy people that the forest is a natural treasure worth protecting. "Dia maninona" is a personal favorite especially when I encounter some narrow-minded people in different parts of the world who think that their way of doing things is the only way... Rossy and I would just sing this song and my anger will go away: "Angaha ny Mokon-dohanareo irery eto ambonin'ny tany no tsy maintsy tohaina. Fa raha mba ny hafa no miteny, vola bôritr'izy ireny ka mangina fa tsy ilaina""

"Dewdrops in the rainforest... an absolute masterpiece; haunting melodies and heartbreaking songs. No need to understand the lyrics here, the message will come across anyway. Also, production-wise this is fantastic, the traditional and modern elements blend together beautifully. This has been one of my favourites for well over 10 years now; the world would be a better place if everyone could listen to this once in a while. Seriously!"
