MIKEA was created in 2003 by singer and guitar player Theo Rakatovao. When he appeared for the first time on the stage of the musical club « Le Glacier » in Antananarivo, capital of Madagascar, Theo was wearing a traditional hatchet on his belt ! A look which was going to captivate the attention of the public and, when the band played the first notes, everyone knew that a new voice had just made an imperial raid on the musical scene. MIKEA draws his musical inspiration for the « Beko », the authentic blues from South Madagascar.
MIKEA was awarded the « Prix Découvertes RFI 2008 » by Radio France Internationale in November 2008.
His first album « Taholy » was released in May 2009 on label Contre-Jour
