Catalog no.: SD0033234

Item ID: 466064

In the seven magical musical numbers of 'Gris-Gris', the root doctor conjures up a potent mixture of creole melodies, primeval heathen sounds, a pinch of mardi-gras and New Orleans jazz and even undreamt of sounds. 'Gumbo Ya Ya', a dragging procession with archaic sing-song, shows that suggestive Afro sounds are what rule in this album. And to play with them, to soften them here and there, or to enhance them with dance-like expression and voices from afar ('Danse Fambeaux') is all part of the programme in this collection of artistic treasures.

Also available: GRIS-GRIS (MONO/GREEN) (LP).
