Boogie & Disco Funk from the Surinamese Dance Floors '76-'83. A compilation filled with disco and boogie gems from Surinam between 1976-1983. With an estimate of 500,000 inhabitants, Surinam has a lively music scene. Although Surinam is a relatively unknown country, it has a strong influence on the Netherlands, where many Surinamese people have been living since a couple of decades ago. The music from Surinam is mainly known for its kaseko (which evolved out of the traditional Kawina music) and soul music, but the Surinamese have also been active in other genres such as pop, funk and jazz. Most Surinamese music is hard to come by, and their funk is especially rare. Because it's that rare, one often wonders how much of it has been made. The occasional funk tracks pop up on a kaseko or soul album, but full funk albums are difficult to locate. Kindred Spirits' aim is to document these lost gems: dancefloor tracks which meet the international standard of "good" dance music. While digging through these records, looking for something new, the label found a bunch of crossover tunes, resulting in this specialized boogie-funk compilation. The Surinam! compilation features 10 rare tracks within the Surinamese boogie-funk genre. Key players from the '76-'83 era such as Solat, Sumy, Erwin Bouterse, Reingoud and Thunderstorm are all included. The compilation also features extensive liner notes containing in-depth information on all the artists on the compilation. This album is the first volume in the Surinam! series. The other upcoming issues will focus on the other genres of obscure Surinamese music, such as jazz and soul.
