Separated by the sea and time from the rest of the world, Madagascar sails majestically down its own evolutionary route, a living Ark of special animals that exist nowhere else. A unique complement of lemurs, fruit bats, frogs and birds are revealed on this charming CD. This treasure chest of esoteric sounds opens with the inimitable Indri, maybe the closest thing the world has to a real singing teddy bear! 61 min.
