Launching Cabot Arts’s new “Cabot Folk Club” concert series will be Burlington-based singer-songwriter from Madagascar, Mikahely!
Mikahely draws inspiration from traditional Malagasy rhythms to create his own unique and healing sounds on guitar and valiha (a zither-like instrument made from bamboo). Singing his all original music in his native language of Malagasy, Mikahely transcends boundaries. Having toured in Madagascar and Europe, Mikahely now brings his music to new audiences in the United States.
In his home country of Madagascar, Mikahely is a renowned musician and guitarist. He has performed throughout the island, has toured Europe, and is featured in the documentary Guitar Madagascar.
