More details about Jaojoby –
The “King of Salegy” is the nickname given by his fellow countrymen to the grooviest performer of the Indian Ocean. Jaojoby is all at the same time a singer-songwriter-composer
Eusèbe Jaojoby was born in July 1955 in the north-east of Madagascar. He realised that he had a talent when singing in church at an early age. At 15 his father sent him to study in Diego Suarez, the capital of the North and an old pirate landmark which was much appreciated by French sailors. In this city known for its lively night life, it did not take Eusèbe long to find himself on stage. A double life began between nightclubs and school, which he held up on both fronts for several years. The clientele wanted current international hits but Eusèbe and the musicians slowly integrated traditional Madagascan elements into their music using electric guitars. Modern Salegy, today the unifying music of Madagascar was taking shape.
After juggling between journalism on the national public media networks and music, Eusèbe Jaojoby chose to dedicate his life to music in 1988, forming his first band. Since having taken this decision, he recorded and released 7 albums and performed hundreds of concerts in dozens of countries, all around Europe, the Indian Ocean and North America.
Jaojoby’s tour will kick off with Africa Day
