Gareth Fitzpatrick Superb percussive afro trance, hypnotic and entrancing.
I received the purple vinyl and it was quite badly warped. Fortunately it plays ok but quality control could be better.

Cosmographer This is heaven for percussionists. The recording is superb and you will get lost in the exuberant rhythmic feast of these master musicians. Plus this has got to be one of the most beautiful album covers of all time. Favorite track: Odjay - Nati Kongo.

about

Afro-Caribbean voodoo polyrhythms meet bass-weight dub electronics on Vodou Alé, the debut full-length collaboration between Haitian six-piece Chouk Bwa and Belgian production duo, The Ångströmers. The traditional and contemporary collide on this nine-track merger of distinct Haitian mizik rasin (roots music) and rumbling electronic production, forging a thrilling and hypnotic dialogue between minimalist sound design and Afro-Haitian drum talk.
