EDITORS’ NOTES

The sparks of Caribbean revolution animate the pan-African grooves of guitarist/singer Wesli, who weaves West African and Jamaican traditions into his own Haitian heritage to concoct this delightful album. Whether summoning the spirit of Bob Marley on the rippling “La Vi dwol” or punching up the accordion on “Mon Konpè,” Wesli’s always keeping one eye on his homeland, most delightfully when Port-au-Prince guitarist Toto Laraque trades verses on the lilting “Le Pèsòn”. And when he strips the band back for kora-led acoustic interlude “Sonje,” the results are a charming tribute to West Africa.
