Following the acclaimed Kouté jazz, we are glad to announce our new project compilation with parisian label Heavenly Sweetness in collaboration with afro/antilles record expert Nicolas Skliris. This project, that we introduced in mid February as Digital Zandoli with a limited mixtape, aimed to gather a wide spectrum of tracks from pre zouk era in the french West Indies. These tracks reveal the merger between traditional and other rhythmic genres (funk, disco, afro-beat, Latin Brazilian …), with the addition of synthesizers and drums machine to the creative process. Original, magnetic and highly danceable.
