Max Cilla – La Flûte des Mornes (Martinique, 1981, Apia)

For today, I wanted to share with you “La Flûte des Mornes“, a Spiritual Island Jazz track driven by the sublime flute of the Martinican Master Max Cilla (who is still active today !) & backed by killer Gwo-Ka percussions, taken from the 1st album of the artist & recorded in 1981 – Enjoy !

Gwakasonné – Lovli (Guadeloupe, 1987, GKS)

Gwakasonne was a band from Guadeloupe island, composed by several great Jazz and Gwo Ka players such as José Bellerose and Edmony Krater, and leaded by Roger Oumaou.

They recorded 3 albums together in the 80’s, that are really hard to find nowadays.

The track presented here, “Lovli“, is taken from “Temwen“, their last album recorded in 1987, and is a great example of the unique kind of music they used to play, a perfect blend of Gwo Ka and Spiritual Jazz elements – Enjoy !
