$27.00

Seance Centre present Vwayajé (Traveller), a momentous collection of recordings from the oeuvre of Robert Oumaou under the group honorific Gwakasonné. Drawing on spiritual-jazz, avant-electronics and local rhythmic and voice traditions, the music of Gwakasonné takes as its thematic foundation Guadeloupian independence and Créole poetics, growing out of the Ka (drum) and voice and expanded into rich, multi-genre zones. Compiled from three albums recorded in 1980s Point-a-Pitre - Gwakasonné, Temwen, and Moun - plus an electronic mantra taken from his 2007 solo album Sang Comment Taire, Vwayajé is a deep and timely testament to memory of Oumaou.
