Mantra – Baile Mi Hermano (Martinique, 1970s, Hit Parade)

Mantra was a quite obscure band from the city of Fort-de-France (Martinique, in the French West Indies) that released only one album in the late 70s.

The band was composed by :

Julian Martin (Piano, organ, guitar)
Anison Rabess (Bass, vocals)
David Laville (2nd guitar)
Algernon Rabess (Guitar, vocals)
Alex Larocque (Drums, vocals)
Janet Azzouz (Vocals)
Archie James (Trumpet)
Leon Knibbs (Percussion)

I wanted to make you rediscover today “Baile Mi Hermano“, an incredible and irresistible West Indian Guaguanco track, one of my favorite of the genre – Enjoy !!!
