Hi folks, I've seen various articles saying there were trade ports along the Madagascan coast in the Middle Ages founded by Arab and Bantu traders but can't find any names or locations. Does any one have any info?

From the Encyclopaedia of Islam 2nd ed. vol 5. Madagascar article by G. Ferrand - (P. VĂ©rin), on pages 940-942 i think you can find some answers , i hope the pages are readable:
