Moken – Chapters of My Life (Bantu)

Moken grew up in Cameroon, but emigrated to the US for college and ended up in Texas. Here is a fusion of African folk rhythms & chorus, unusual vocals, & subtle elements of Tex-Mex with strains of the music & instrumentation one often hears in old spaghetti westerns. Fun!

Two CDs with songs from 3 recording sessions from this five-member band from LA. CD1 (Then) is earlier material with classic reggae, dancehall, & cumbia, while CD2 (Now) includes folk, soul, blues, & pop.
