On their Maloya EP, the Basel collective pay tribute to the hypnotic rhythms that were feared both by the Catholic Church and the French government for the musical form's subversive part in the rebellion against colonialism. The release revolves around two contrasting Alma Negra re-workings of Lindigo's "Tany Be". The first takes a classic call-and-response structure in 12/8 and 6/8 rhythms, adding a driving bass line, and guitar licks. The "Dub Mix" concentrates on trance-inducing aspect of Maloya. The B side focuses on "Kabaré" by Christine Salem, one of today's stars of the Maloya scene.
