Lolo is the archrival group of Mahaleo and delivers an A+
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Lolo and Mahaleo hand in hand developed a new style of contemporary music in Madagascar in 1972 when the students had a riot on the streets. There would be no telling, which group is better than the other, but to each its own. The only CD of Lolo around, this is a MUST HAVE for young fans. The songs are great and have that revolting characteristics of the 72s. Le Kaoma is a song about a man from Comores Island who tried to make a living in Mahajanga as a political refugee. Maninona is my favorite in this Cd in which a friend comforts a crying and heartbroken person after being dumped. Any Lavidavitra Any is also a hit where the songwriter tell a new lover that he is not the right guy for her since he is not what she wants: a rich guy that she can use or a forgiving guy that she can cheat on or a street fighter to send away trouble that she created with her adulterous behavior. Mpivahiny is about a woman who never learns her lesson that a man will leave her after he got what he wanted and that she is left fixing the bed in the morning. Hono Hoa is a question mark about all the luxury auto and pretty women who travel west on weekend. Where are they going? Why are they so mean to the local people? Fibata is a witty song about the famous bus system in Madagascar in the 70s and 80s. It is also a politically motivated song! I like the Lolo guys very much and would recomend this CD in a heartbeat"
