HI FOLKS ! ALLE 23 TORNA RUSTY CAGE ! questa sera la 7^ trasmissione della VII stagione, : "THE BEST LONDON 70'S FUNK: CYMANDE (peace !!!) "
Cosa c'è di meglio che non lasciarsi cullare dagli avvolgenti groove soul-funk dei Cymande, multietnico ensemble afro-caraibico di stanza a Londra nei primi anni '70 ? I dj londinesi programmano ancora oggi i loro brani, incisi per una sussidiaria della Chess tra il 1972 e il 1974 e nel 1973 arrivarono a suonare per una settimana intera all'Apollo Theater a NYC e Spike Lee li ha utilizzati nella colonna sonora della sua "25ma Ora"... DA NON PERDERE !!!
CYMANDE or the greatest funk in London in early 70's. Here you can listen to some tracks taken from their three albums, published between 1972 and 1974 by a small British subsidiary of Chess Records. They were London-based, but they come from Africa, Eastern Africa, Caribbean Islands and Jamaica, mixing their influences in a high-class soul-funk. They got success in US with their first album, between 1972 and 1973, touring with Bobby Blue Bland and Al Green, firing the stage at the Apollo Theater for an entire week. But being black in London in 1972 didn’t help them a lot… Let’s discover them (as Spike Lee did with his “25th Hour” movie soundtrack !).
This radioshow was originally broadcast on Wednesday, November 6th, 2019, on Radio onda d’Urto (Brescia, Italy) at 11 p.m.. Enjoy it !!!
