About the Video
So this video is a music video. It was written by a group called Big Rap Ivohibe, who are a bunch of kids about 18-23. I met two of them the night I danced Kilalaky at the gendarmerie. They showed me their music; original music with original lyrics. The song is in Malagasy but I had it translated and some of the lines roughly translate to this:
"Madagascar used to be a green island paradise, now it is red and washing away. Our ancestors died to protect it from the colonialists and now we are killing our land and leaving nothing for our descendants."
It really surprised me that some of the coolest guys in town, the rap singers wrote songs about protecting the environment. It was not Kilalaky music, but it was still really good. So the idea of the video is to bring the idea of environmental protection to the dance floor. To the social stage, and at the same time spreading the name of Big Rap Ivohibe and their songs, in the region where WWF Ivohibe is working and maybe even further!
