about

Appalled by the environmental destruction taking place in her native Madagascar as a result of climate change and slash and burn agriculture, singer Razia Said has created an inspired musical call to action. Buoyed by the irresistible rhythms and catchy melodies of traditional Malagasy music, Razia adds an accessible contemporary approach and engaging song craft to create an album with a timely message and timeless beauty.

On, Zebu Nation, Razia’s international debut, the singer moves effortlessly between Malagasy, jazz and R&B music styles with deep rhythms and soothing melodies that gently grab the listener. Critic Bill Wahl wrote of Razia in Jazz & Blues, “Like Sade she has a very smooth voice, and is quite sensual, but the world rhythms add a whole different dimension to her music.” Zebu Nation creates a vivid, soulful portrait of Madagascar, whose culture and music are little known outside its borders.
