I just wanted to point out the existence of this amazing new compilation of 1960s-70s tunes from Martinique and Guadeloupe. I’ve been listening to it non-stop for days now and it’s been doing a pretty good job of warding away the winter gloom. I don’t want to upload the whole thing since it’s fairly new, but here are a few songs to check out. Mediafire/megaupload are fairly easy to find. Or you can choose to be a good person and buy it here.
Manzè Mona – Raphaël Zachille
D’Leau Coco – Les Leopards
Dima Bolane – Le Ry-co Jazz
Bernardino Femminielli - Plaisirs Americains (2016)
