Salegy is a popular music genre from Madagascar. Eusèbe Jaojoby, a Sakalava singer from Antsiranana, was a key originator of the style and is widely considered the 'King of Salegy'. The style is funky and energetic, dominated by ringing electric guitars, real or synthesized accordion, and call-and-response polyphonic vocals, propelled by heavy electric bass and a driving percussion section typically including a drum kit, djembe and shakers.
