Clifford Sylvain — Rara Machine

The first Haitian record I posted remains one of the most popular grooves on this site, and I expect this dynamic record to equally excite. This first album from what would become the band Rara Machine, this record 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.

My posts are destined to be sporadic for an indeterminate while, as I am in a transition, one that requires my entire focus. Until the next time, then:
