If Zebu Nation was Razia Saids explosion onto the world music scene and Akory an evocative and flowering sequel, then her new album, The Road, has the mark of an artist coming into her own, where the beauty of the music is only amplified by the depth of personal exploration. Said a Malagasy-born New Yorker, has lived in Libreville/Gabon, Paris, London, Milan, Bali, Ibiza, working as a stylist, an actor and in fashion, until an encounter with the manager of the famous Malagasy band Njava in 2007 helped her find a deeper calling: raising awareness about environmental and social action through her unique, inspiring voice.
Razia sings mostly in Malagasy, but also in French and English, inspired by the rhythms, melodies and instruments from her childhood. Her acclaimed first album Zebu Nation released by Cumbancha in 2010 was the beginning of a long musical journey back to Madagascar. Since then Razia has toured and recorded worldwide.
Singer and songwriter Razia Saids nomadic life has taken her across Africa to France, Italy and New York City, Ibiza, Bali, but despite these wanderings, her heart and soul remains inexorably tethered to Madagascar, the land of her birth. Her musical explorations have also been wide ranging, and over the years Razia has experimented with French chanson, rock, jazz and even smooth, Sade-style R&B. But it took reaching back to her cultural roots for Razia to uncover her true artistic calling and emerge as both a unique voice in the global music scene as well a passionate advocate for the environment.
