Rare funk & Avant-Garde soul from a seven years old kid singer featuring the best of French and Cameroonian musicians diaspora, recorded in Paris in 1977. Deluxe LP in tip-on jacket + linernote. Tip!The album contains two nicely dramatic tracks:
ï¿½Look Up in the sky (Negro nature)ï¿½ is a stretched funk groove with psyche synth by Michel Morose, bubbling bassline by the great Victor Edimo, the famous Toto Guillaume on guitar, and a brilliant poetic song by Francis The Great, who at that time studied in Menilmontant (Paris).
ï¿½Ravissante Baby (Negro Phasing)ï¿½ is a long hypnotic funky soukous track with a tremendous lead guitar and a long spoken-word and soulful kid vocal about the beauty of nature.
Originally produced by his father, a great impresario of African artists in Paris during the 70s, and coordinated by his mother, this album is unique, fresh and out of genre in a way! Itï¿½s universal Funk!
