Toko Telo + Sun Chicken Akoho Masoandro For Ragas Live 2020
A portrait from Madagascar
Monika Njava shares her recipe for Akoho Masoandro (Sun Chicken) to enjoy with her Toko Telo performance for Ragas Live, a dish as vibrant as their music.
Monika Njava and Toko Telo
Known as the voice of Madagascar, Monika Njava has a number of albums under her belt, both solo and various collaborations. A percussionist and vocalist, she continues to break musical ground as she combines traditional Malagasy music with sounds and artists from around the globe.
We reached out to Toko Telo to ask if there was any dish they recommended that we enjoy along with their performance, and they generously shared a recipe from Monika Njava’s cookbook: Akoho Masoandro (Sun Chicken).
I think it’s the first time we have made food from Madagascar and we are so excited. So register + donate via Pioneer Works, and then buy your groceries to cook along with us!
We’ve been listening to Toko Telo via Spotify in preparation for their performance. Such cool instrumentation and energy.
Thank you to Tako Telo for a wonderful performance! Your music is full of great energy and interesting sounds melded together. We think the Akoho Masoandro (Sun Chicken) that we ate along with it mimicked the sound in this way, with pineapple, and cinnamon, cloves, coconut, and pickled onions … all came together in one vibrant and varied taste.
And once again, thank you to Monika Njava for generously sharing your recipe to accompany the Tako Telo performance.
