Le "Kabari" dans la société sud-Betsileo

Abstract : Introduced in Madagascar at the time of the Vazimba, the kabary (or speech) ponctuates all the happy or unhappy events in the betsileo ethnie group. This omnipresence confers to it its sociocultural fonction. The kabary generally consists in an oral interaction between two men, the floor is rarely given to women. These talented rhetoricians are mandated by the old people, i.e; the parenty or the elder to represent their respective clan. Their performance requires a mastery of genealogy and perfect knowledge of their ethnie culture.
