Description
Gwakasoone - Vwayaje 
Seance Centre - Canada - 2018
New Release
Format: LP
Style: Gwo Ka / Spiritual / Islands

Atmospherics of sampled surf and sea birds let you know that these are island songs. Eleven from the 1980s, and one from two decades later. The latter, W3, sounding like a more chilled Zazou / Bikaye / CY1. Or a lost track from Jasper Van`t Hof`s Pili Pili. All of them born in Guadeloupe, and featuring the rotating assembly of players contained in Robert Oumaou`s fifteen man and woman strong Gwakasonne collective. Featuring hands on traditional Gwo Ka drums. The Boula and Marqueur. Fingers on Highlife and Tuareg guitars, flute, keys and trumpet. A fretless bass making Jazzy runs. The flute forced through echo. The horn, Don Cherry-esque. Collected now on Seance Centre`s compilation of Gwakasoone`s work, Vwayaje.
