Synopsis

Amazon.com
Malavoi has been tapping the traditions of Caribbean music for over 30 years, to produce sweet, sophisticated, and elegant pop music. This band from the French Antilles is made up of dynamic vocalists, the finest violin section around, and a muscular rhythm section of piano, bass, drums, and percussion. This is one of their very best releases. "Shé Shé" is a concept album that follows several generations of Martinicans and their loves, struggles, and dreams. The French Creole lyrics reveal the depth beneath the sweet sheen of the music, exploring themes of searching, loss, parting families, and the emigrant's longing for home. The music while thoroughly modern, often incorporates older French styles like biguine and mazurka, and mixes in Afro-Cuban swing as well. This CD is a truly satisfying excursion into the extremely danceable heart and soul of the French Caribbean. --Jeff Grubb
