This debut album was made in April 2014 in the village Petite Rivière Bayonnais, close to the lakou of Souvenance where the drum-maker Charles Simé lives. Recorded under the cover of an ajoupa open to the winds, these 15 tracks bear the marks of daily village life and carry the flame of a cosmopolitan African inheritance. The CD booklet features photos by Jacques-Yves Le Docte and excerpts from Yanick Lahens‘ novel Bain de Lune, as a subtle and brotherly reflection to Jean-Claude ‘Sambaton’ Dorvil‘s mighty lyrics (fully featured in the liner notes).
