In fact, a free concert was held during two hours in the castle of Weinhem, with renowned artists Dama Mahaleo and Olombelo Ricky. It was also an opportunity to introduce a new group “Bois de Rose” composed of German and Malagasy artists. All the songs gave emotional feeling and nostalgia of Madagascar to the audience made of diaspora throughout the region and German.
The next day, a roundtable organized by the Association "Friends of Madagascar" was held in the city of Weinheim, whose theme is "Madagaskar-Kultur-Insel zwinschen den Kontinenten". Participants with the Chargé d'Affaires of the Embassy were made by the President of the Association Mr Erich Raab, Dama Mahaleo, researchers in anthropology, science and culture with Mr. Hermann Rademacher, an expert in the field of training as a moderator. The debate was generally the value of the Malagasy culture, the importance of respect for the culture in order to develop partnership of investment in Madagascar, the diversity of Malagasy as an advantage, not a weakness has also been highlighted. The roundtable reserved a special “livre d’or” signed by participants with the presence of Deputy of the city of Weinhem.
