Em Malgaxe "Mahaleo" significa liberdade, independencia e autônomo. Os sete músicos do grupo Mahaleo sempre recusaram o "show-business" apesar dos seus trinta anos de sucesso. Eles se dedicam ao desenvolvemento do país.
Esses inventores do Blues Malgaxe são tambén cirurgiões, médico, agriculdor, sociólogos ou deputado... Acredita-se em Madagascar que as canções dos Mahaleo levaram o pôvo a fazer a revolução de 1972 até conseguir a quêda do regime neo-colonial. Hoje, eles continuam a cantar sendo a banda mais famosa da ilha e acompanhar a vida dos Malgaxes.

Guiados pela força e a emoção das canções do grupo, o filme é um retrato de Madagascar hoje em dia.

Mahaleo is the most famous band in Madagascar. In Malagasy "Mahaleo" means free, independent, self-sufficient. The 7 musicians of the band have never fallen into "show-business" despite 30 years of success. They chose to remain "amateurs" and they dedicate their efforts to a "real" profession aside from the music. They are hysician, surgeons, farmer, lawyer, sociologist or deputy. Driven by yhe strength of their songs and their activities our film will sketch a portrait of Madagascar today.
