Back in the Carribbean this week for Sound Travels. In Particular, checking out the sound of two French-speaking islands, Martinique and Guadalupe. Musically, it makes sense to connect the two as they share a lot in common and have been linked historically in many ways, especially musically.
There are many styles to choose from in Martinique and Guadaloupe and today I got some very tribal sounds into the minimix. Music centered on the rhythm of the drum circle peppered with lyrics sung in creole. Incredibly dope!
