Sorabe - { Madagascan Kambaba Stone }


What on earth is Sorabe?

You've heard the legends of beautiful Madagascar. But have you heard of their beautiful language?

It's called Malagasy. It's spoken by the 18 million inhabitants of the beautiful island.

Now let us let you in on a little know fact: It's first written script used the Arabic alphabet!

This script is called Sorabe. (From the Arabic 'Surah'  and the Malagasy 'be' meaning large)

Sorabe was introduced by Muslim traders from Java and was adopted as the main writing system for centuries.

As a tribute to this beautiful legacy, let us a introduce you to this work of art.
