Clifford Sylvain – Rara Machine (Not On Label – CS1001 / US / 1980) Haitian trip today with this banger : the first album from what would become the band Rara Machine, this LP begins with a bang. Keyboards and percussion sets it up before the bass drops, and then Clifford Sylvain rides the rhythms with his fine singing. Not all the six songs on this album are as irresistible as "Palé Avem," but it is a very solid rara workout from a prodigious musical family. Former Skah Sha percussionist (he was on their hit « Man Nimewo A »), Clifford Sylvain has straddled the expatriate experience with deep Haitian extraction - his father both served in the government and was arrested by it. His music fuses Rara and Voudou ritual with contemporary pop sounds and equipment, bringing a modern touch to very ancient musical roots. #analogdakarclub#haiti#rara#raramchine#twoubadou#cliffordsylvain#epxatriate#voudou#skahsha#caribean#afrocaribean#westindies#dancefloorfiller#africandiggers
