The first work by Martinique-born guitarist/composer Gratien Midonet in 1979. Moved to Paris and performed the whole sound based on Martinique's traditional rhythm and spiritual beliefs, "light" vibes that are Caribbean music but do not belong to any genre, somehow nostalgic and the performances that each performer shows are also wonderful. Among the best tracks are B4 "Mari Rhont Ouve La Pot," which starts with percussion rhythm and moves into a psychedelic electronic part, and A4 "En Ti Sapotiye," with its dopey beat and trippy tones. Totally unique and quality music that is hard to convey in words.

マルティニーク出身のギタリスト/作曲家Gratien Midonetによる79年の初作。パリに移り住み、マルティニークの伝統リズムや精霊信仰を下地としたサウンドを全編に披露、カリビアンミュージックではあるもののどのジャンルにも属さない、どこかノスタルジックでいて軽やかなバイブス、各演者が見せる演奏も素晴らしいです。中でも軽やかなパーカッションのリズムが先行する序盤からサイケデリックな電子音が舞うパートへ移るB4”Mari Rhont Ouve La Pot”、ドープなビートにトリッピーな音色が加わるA4”En Ti Sapotiye”は最高です。言葉では伝えづらいユニークかつクオリティな音楽。
