I'm still on a massive high from DJ'ing in Seattle @ The Emerald City Soul Club Weekender, two nights in a row. Met tons of cool folks, many of whom have been digging this site for years. It was a righteous time!!!
Cymnade were a group formed in London, made up of folks hailing from Jamaica, Guyana and Saint Vincent; their name is a calypso term for dove; the symbol of peace. Their music is a lovely mixture of island rhythms and steady grooving funk.
This particular song is what it's all about, to me. TOGETHER is where it's at.
