Soul Jazz continue their study of classic Caribbean sounds here with an LP from Tradisyon Ka, a contemporary example of the Gwo Ka music of Guadeloupe. In a region populated largely by the ancestors of forcibly relocated African slaves, Guadeloupe is unusual in that it is still a Euro-spending, croissant-eating department of France, and the Gwo Ka style mixes African polyrhythms and call-and-response vocals with elements of the French chanson style.
