Zombie Club presents Come to the Caribbean, a sonic cruise through the Caribbean dance music of the Antilles and the Caribbean basin sea, born from the heat of the African drum and mixing of blacks, Latins and whites. The Zombie Club was a mythical cabaret and ballroom in Havana in the '50s, along with the Sans Souci, Faraon or Tropicana. These places were a meeting of the colorful, tumultuous and licentious nocturnal fauna of the era where dancers sculpted bodies, gangsters, sailors, tourists, students and revolutionaries. The smoke of snuff and the best rum drinks acted as fuel for the orchestras and groups, who unmistakably defined not only the nature but also musical exoticism of the Antilles and the Caribbean. This volume mixes the Bahamas goombay with Puerto Rican bomba and plena, Cuban son, mambo or guaracha with Colombian gaitas and cumbias, calypso from Trinidad and Jamaican mento, Latino swing and Cuban conga with rhythm'n'blues from Louisiana. Here are the roots of genres that developed later on as ska, reggae, boogaloo, salsa, soca, champeta, soul or -- you name it -- dance music in general. This is a sonic journey through time and space by islands and ports in the Caribbean Sea. All tracks remastered and restored. 300 gram cardboard printed on the reverse side.
