QUIZ QUESTIONS                    




1.   When did Madagascar get her independence? Who was the first Leader of the Independent Madagascar?


   2.    Madagascar is an Island coutry so it is not surrounded by other
countries.  It is surrounded by the India Ocean.  Madagascar
is said to be the fourth largest island in the world. When the
continents were still together and called Gondwana, Madagascar
was still connected to it.  But when the continent broke apart,
and India was separated from Africa, Madagascar became a
chunck of Africa and India. This split was over 88 million years ago.  As a result of this split, almost 90% of the wildlife on the
island are unique to it and cannot be found anywhere else
in the world. People who inhabit this island come mostly from Asia, Africa and Europe. By 1000 CE the Bantu migrated here
and settled there among the Malagasy people.  The two official
languages spoken here are French and Malagasy.  My question

____________________________________________


                                                             Listen to the
                      
National Anthems of All
               African Countries


Every day a different African country's national     Anthem will play the entire day on this page.   This gives us an opportunity to listen to all the
National Anthems of each country in Africa.   There are 53 countries in Africa.  Some have
said that Liberia has one of the best Anthems
in the world.  Now we can listen to all the 
National Anthems of Africa and compare ours
with theirs.

The other reason for this exercise is to provide our people the opportunity to listen to, and to learn about other African countries, see their flags, hear their National Anthems, and enjoy the very beautiful music we call, a country's National Anthem. Much of our information comes from Nationalanthem.info.    
Please take note of the dates each

country's Anthem is played.  We begin with
South Africa on the 5th of August and end with
São Tomé and Principe on September 24, 2013.

If you want to know more about any of the
African countries, just click on the name of 
the particular country below on the left in blue among the list of 53 countries and you will have the information right there at your finger tip.

__________________________________________


One interesting factor about the listing of the  African countries in the order in which they are listed.  They are listed with the country with the highest per capital income above and the lowest per capital income at the bottom of the list. Liberia is 6 up from the bottom.   Total number of countries is 53. _____________________________________________
Lyric English translation 1. Oh, Our beloved fatherland
Oh good Madagascar.
Our love for you will not leave,
For you, for you for ever.

CHORUS:
Bless you, oh Creator
This island of our ancestors
To live in peace and joy
Hey! We are truly blessed.

2. Oh our beloved fatherland!
We wish to serve you with
The body and heart, spirit that is ours,
You are precious and truly deserving.

Chorus

3. Oh our beloved fatherland!
We wish that you will be blessed,
So that the Creator of this world
Will be the foundation of your laws.

Chorus
