Granit Records present a reissue of Claude Rodap & Fregate Orchestra's Syn-Ka, originally released in 1982. The French West Indies continue to deliver some obscure gems and this one, after a long time waiting in the dust and anonymity, resurfaces. This private press was originally conceived in 1982, in a context where many French Caribbean musicians were searching for their own style and fusing traditional musical heritages (gwo-ka, bel air, biguine) and synthetic music. Claude Rodap's Syn-Ka sums it all up. This amazing album crosses many styles, from synth music merged with bel-air and gwo ka, cosmic reggae, electronic proto-disco, zouk and spacey jazz funk. Comes with an insert in French, English and Japanese.
