the future is tropical. i don’t just mean sea temperatures. from concerto records in amsterdam… there are little to no traces of the artists on the internets except occasional list recognition. if you have more information…
kaseko is the dominant style here – breaking the body in dance since days of slavery. call, response and a big bass drum. it broke in the netherlands during the 70s when (at a guess) the first two of these records were made and distributed. a time of mass migration from suriname (one third of the surinamese population moved north) in the run up to independence in 75.
fresh off a train from the netherlands… concerto record store is great. a flying visit barely scratched the surface. here’s a little scratch. maybe I’m using the wrong cheat codes, but a bit of googling turned up nothing. I know its from Suriname, band shot looks 70s… again any info appreciated.
(btw thanks to lamin who upped the full Mahmoud Guenya / Pharaoh Sanders LP – his comment got lost in the spam weir)
