Jose Carlos Schwarz & Le Cobiana DjazzLua Ki Di Nos – The Moon Is Ours ... LP
Hot Mule (France), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 42.99
Really powerful music from Jose Carlos Schwarz – both a singer and a key fighter in the movement for independence in Guinea-Bissau in the 70s – so much so that he spent a few years in prison, after recording most of the work on this set! The style of the music is a bit hard to describe – definitely with some familiar Guinean modes, but also dominated by the message-oriented vocals of Jose Carlos, who comes across almost with the mix of culture and politics that you'd hear in a Chilean artist of the time – save for the difference of language. There's a moody, brooding feel to the tracks – even though the group Cobiana Djazz still provide plenty of groove – and the music has a much more righteous vibe than so many other African records of the period, which is really saying a lot. Title sinclude "Amigus Ka Bali", "Na Kolonia", "Indicativo", "Estin", "Lua Kata Kema", "Tiu Bernal", "Dispus Ke E Lebal", "Mindjeris De Panu Pretu", and "Pintcha Kamion". LP, Vinyl record album
