The late Rakotozafy was a musician from Madagascar. He was the best-known and most successful player of the traditional Malagasy "valiha" (a multi-stringed, plucked instrument). Legend has it that Rakotozafy took the $600 recording fee for his only album Valiha Malaza (Famous Valiha) and went on a huge drinking binge which resulted in his death. Valiha Malaza features Rakotozafy's young son on vocals, and the musician can be heard crossly chiding the boy for his performance.
