BAHAMAS



VARIOUS ARTISTS CULT CARGO: GRAND BAHAMA GOOMBAY (2007, NUMERO GROUP 014)

Goombay is a drum. Goombay is an annual Bahamian street festival. Goombay is a flavor, literally, and not entirely distant from pina colada. And goombay is the genre of Bahamian music given its name by the drum that beats its rhythm. But goombay is also a sort of shorthand for what native Bahamian musicians of the 1970s crafted: an island music instantly familiar and specifically Caribbean, yet unequivocally Bahamian.

Compren, roben, bajen o pidan prestado este disco!

Muy buena pinta tiene este disco,
ribar no creo que lo robe,
por lo menos físicamente.

Supongo que ya conoceis la noticia, pero por si acaso pongo el link,
se necesitan donaciones para un familiar de uno de los componentes de Wolf Eyes:
