A really cool take on traditions of Guadeloupean musical traditions – served up in a style that echoes some of the blends of jazz and island elements from earlier generations!

The group here is a trio – with the great Edmondy Krater on ka, djembe, and percussion – all instruments that are often used in ways that are as melodic as they are rhythmic – and blended with more percussion from Olivier Maurieres and harp from Anne Bacqueyrisse, the last of which is clearly a different variation on the instrument than the more familiar European mode – used to accent some great elements in the percussion with great colors and tones alongside the grooves. There's vocals on a number of tracks, but the percussion/harp interplay is key – and titles include "Natibel", "Mazunga", "Gwadeloup", "Armelance", "Metamorphoses", and "Arawak E Karayib".
