The Malagasy supergroup Toko Telo is made up of legendary guitarist and Madagascar’s most well-known musician D’Gary, singer Monica Njava hailed as “the voice of Madagascar” by Afropop Worldwide, and rising star Joël Rabesolo, the most celebrated guitarist of his generation. The trio reinvents Malagasy instrumentation and styles such as tsapiky - a joyful guitar-led dance rhythm often played at traditional ceremonies - with unequaled artistry, which will be on display at this NYC debut appearance.
