Recordkicks/Groove Attack

From Sidney, Australia: The Liberators, a 10 pieces instrumental orchestra dedicated to the legacy, sounds and future of the Afro-Beat. If it all sounds real, incarnated, seriously studied and digested, then lovely played all at once. I as often with such cultural stretches, wonder a bit. I cannot help admire the enterprise for many reasons (one being from Paris and facing a lot of African music since earliest days), but would much rather instinctively go back to the originals. A last growing comment is that I started to get really fed up by actual recordings that try to sound even more vintage than the way they did it back in the days. Admirable, more than desirable.
