Two miles off the South-East coast of Madagascar our persistently temperamental engines finally refuse to co-operate with us.
We limp into an inlet under sail for repairs and are joined in a musical interlude by a Madagascan percussionist who keeps a pet lemur that sings a winsome song to accompany his percussions. The intermittent engines inspire the rhythms and make themselves known during the chorus.
