Digital Kabar: Electronic Maloya From La Reunion Since 1980

IF 1052LP IF 1052LP

Double LP version. Digital Kabar: Electronic Maloya From La Reunion Since 1980 is a compilation of electronic music from Reunion, an island in the Indian Ocean. Combining tropical sounds, sunny moods, and créole dialect, Digital Kabar features mostly unknown artists from the island. It is the perfect summer-opening compilation for both rare groove diggers and DJs in search of the best tropical beats. Formerly clandestine, today manifest, both sacred but also profane, sometimes meditated, very often improvised, the Kabar transpires in the daily life on Reunion, getting rid with insolence of any label that dares to try to impose itself. The Kabar is a fleeting but bubbling manifestation of an identity and a local culture that is still difficult to define. A moment of life and sharing where handcrafted instruments, neighborhood meetings, ritual dances and lyrical demands are mixed, a meeting. Born from the musical union of maloya and electronic music, Digital Kabar is a compilation at the crossroads of cultures, porous to all sound experiences. It's also the result of a friendship resulting from InFiné heading to the Les Electropicales festival, the fascination of a small team dedicated to the independent musical cause of a musical scene and its diversity. A musical electronic snapshot from an exotic and unknown part of the globe, half of the tracks on the compilation have never been officially released. Features: Patrick Manent, Boogzbrown, Loya, Jako Maron, Sheitan Brothers, Ti Fock, Boogzbrown & Cubenx, Force Indigène & Jako Maron, Agnesca, Zong, Labelle, Psychorigid, Salem Tradition, J-ZeuS, and Kwalud.
