Simon Jurad - Ambiance Des Antilles

Zouk is (or was) the party music of the French Antilles, the Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe. It is a hybrid music combining influences from Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and western pop, funk and jazz. The dizzy mix is sometimes disorientating on this great, funky album by Simon Jurad.

Looks like a good one.


Simon Jurad is one of the few Martiniquan musicians who can be found playing live somewhere on the island almost every night of the week, his gigs including everything from tourist bar/lounge performances to hip zouk shows. His career began in the cadence era, so as both singer and musician he has a wealth of experience under his belt.(he was the singer of perfecta a famous martinique band ) Jurad's biggest strength is his consistent ability to write catchy, musically interesting songs, although contractual complications have prevented him in recent years from being able to credit himself as songwriter on his albums. ~ Gene Scaramuzzo, All Music Guide Data provided by All Music Guide
