Putumayo Presents Caribe! Caribe! [caribbean]
For a while this site was starting to get people coming just for these Putumayo series uploads. Well I now have most of my collection sorted out and just found a few links to fill in the blanks for some I didn't have.
So here is one of my favourites...a caribbean journey that spans some light dub-reggae to the more traditional caribbean sound as you can hear in the sample video I made.
The All Music Guide review of this album goes like this....
Putumayo's compilation Caribe! Caribe! takes you all over the Caribbean. Not one to be predictable, Putumayo keeps the listener guessing by providing everything from the Black Uhuru-ish reggae of Don Carlos and Gold's "Movin' to the Top" to energetic, infectious sounds from St. Thomas (Osha's "Come Again"), Martinique (Kali's reggae-influenced "La Biguine des Enfants du Bon Dieu"), Belize (Andy Palacio's "Nabi"), and Barbados (Krosfyah's "In Mi System"). Nothing from Cuba, Puerto Rico, or the Dominican Republic is included, but one can hear a strong salsa influence on Haitian singer Beethova Obas' "Lina" and Curacao group La Perfecta's "Bai Drecha Bo Bin." Especially infectious is Aruban band E.Q.Q.'s exuberant "Promo Bia," which is sung in Papiamento, a language that is an unlikely combination of romance and African languages and Dutch. Like many other Putumayo compilations, Caribe! Caribe! boasts comprehensive, informative liner notes and treats the music with the respect it deserves.
Sorry to give you atomic explosions but I just watched this movie about all of the US nuke tests that were pretty much hidden from the public until, well, a few years ago. Not sure of the dates exactly.
Have a listen to a track (Track 05 - Nabi by Andy Palacio)from the album whilst perusing some footage. again, it goes together well.
If the above movie won't work or play, click here to open and watch it in a new window.
All I do know is that I had no fucking idea of just how badly these bastards have raped the planet with their monstrous bombs! You will see in the clip, they tested a lot of high megaton atomic bombs UNDERGROUND which basically caused earthquakes and massive ruptures of the ground, which is visible in the video. Horrendous.
Enjoy the Putumayo and don't forget..as you seem to have: Make your REQUESTS in the request box and you will find that like most others who did, it will be filled!
