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.
