Description

The return of the most important French Antillean band of the 60�s and the 70�s. They bring a unique mix of Biguine, funk, Latin, Compas and early Zouk. Tip!Camille Sopran�n, who founded the band with guitarist Guy Jacquet and bassist Pierre-Edouard D�cimus, personally selected this compilation from the Vikings� vast discography of about 20 albums, starting in 1967.
They obviously inherited a lot from �roots music� (Gwo Ka), jazz and the beguine that had been played on the island since the late 19th century, and of which they give a dazzlingly modern version on �Tou Touni�.

Their music is buffeted by the artistic winds that were sweeping the Caribbean: �Rumbo Melon� is influenced by Latin music; �Assez Pal� is a cover of a number by the great Haitian saxophonist and composer Nemours Jean Baptiste, who is often presented as the inventor of kompa; and �Ambiance� offers a new take on �Guhe Huiamo� by the Ivory Coast singer Am�d�e Pierre.
