Sublime music from Martinique — free-flowing, mystical roots, with lilting jazz, Latin and Cuban rhythms.
Cilla dedicated himself to the revival of the bamboo flute 'of the coastal hills', which he fashioned by hand from a single piece of wood, according to ancient Indian traditions. In this recording from 1981 — a kind of Antillean sister-star to Don Cherry's Mu albums — it is featured alongside the traditional percussion instruments of Martinique.
Good for souls.
