“Put her alongside Angélique Kidjo and Rokia Traoré among the most effective global ambassadors for African music currently on the circuit. The throaty radiance of her voice ranges from dulcet Sade sweet to soulful Winehouse roar, while lyrics railing against environmental destruction and political corruption are juxtaposed against vibrant, swelling dance rhythms, creating a robust and assured Afro-pop globalism of the most inclusive kind." – Nigel Williamson, Uncut Magazine (London, UK)
Singer and songwriter Razia Said’s nomadic life has taken her across Africa to France, Italy, Ibiza, Bali and New York City, but despite these wanderings, her heart and soul remains inexorably tethered to Madagascar, the land of her birth. Her musical explorations have also been wide ranging, and over the years Razia has experimented with French chanson, rock, jazz and even smooth, Sade-style R&B. But it took reaching back to her cultural roots for Razia to uncover her true artistic calling and emerge as both a unique voice in the global music scene as well a passionate advocate for the environment.
