Mahaleo Live at the Olympia
a film by Cesar Paes

On June 2nd and 3rd 2007, Mahaleo’s blues ballades have shaken the Olympia. Cesar Paes – director in 2005 of the movie Mahaleo recounting the band’s story – was there to sensitively film the magic of these two hours and a half concerts. Thirties of their most beautiful song to celebrate their thirty-fifth anniversary, all subtitled in French and in English, as well as in Malagasy for you to try at home a karaoke version! The digital surround sound – mixed by Manu Guiot, a sound engineer who has worked with Bob Dylan, Prince, Mick Jagger, Eurythmics, Eric Clapton, Sting etc. – and the high-definition pictures will have you dive into the unique atmosphere of the concerts.

Remain in Mahaleo’s world thanks to the twenty live songs on the CD and to the forty-page booklet containing the lyrics and the French and English translations of all the songs, illustrated with pictures of the band.

The DVD is compatible with all DVD players, including the American ones and in the rest of the world.
