Traditional Music

Since 2006, Naïnako has ambitioned to promote the traditional music of their region on local and international stages.

Their creations are rooted in the “Antandroy” culture, an ethnic group native of the far South of Madagascar, originally composed of hunters and breeders, who still respect the codes of a very strict traditional society today.

Conventional “Antandroy” music is characterized by its vocal polyphonies, its rhythms, its instruments and dances.

On stage, you will see that the musicians use home-made folk instruments, according to the procedures transmitted by their forefathers. The ancestral rhythms are however modernized thanks to the use of other contemporary instruments, such as the acoustic guitar and the bass, to accompany and adorn their compositions.

Present on the stages of international festivals since 2013, they are determined to continue the work of transmission they have started, so as to raise the flag of Malagasy culture high in Europe, Africa and across the Indian Ocean area.
