THE ROAD

RAZIA SAID

On her third album, Malagasy singer/songwriter Razia delves into her moving personal story with a set of spare songs that showcase her expressive voice and the deft guitar work of Raledy Vink Bamouaz, a pillar of the great Jaojoby’s salegy band. Razia composed most of these songs and recorded the album’s basic tracks in her birthplace, Antalaha, Madagascar, during a vigil for her ailing grandmother, the woman who raised her. Razia, Raledy and drummer Harvey Wirht improvised a studio in their rented apartment there and set to work. Elements were later added in Paris, New York and Baltimore, but the essence of the album lies in the emotions and sounds captured during this watershed period in the artist’s life.
