Webert Sicot & son Ensemble – Gina
Mini Records 1977

Webert Sicot, voorkant

Zo langzamerhand wordt onze GG zo groot en vol dat ik steeds vaker
de fout in ga en muziek begin te digitaliseren die even later al op de
pagina blijkt te staan. Niet zo nozel dus. Om deze blunder weer te
verdoezelen kom ik maar snel met een plaatje dat je hier zeker nog
niet gezien hebt. Kom mee naar Haïti en luister wat we daar vinden.

Our beloved GG is slowly growing to become of such proportion
that if I don’t pay attention, start to repeat myself. Not so smart.
To make up for these blunders better bring something certain
for the first time. Let’s go to Haïti and see what we find there.

Webert Sicot left Nemours Jean-Baptiste compas band and called
his music cadence to differentiate it from compas especially when
he took it abroad, and so the rivalry between Sicot and Nemours
created these names. Raymond had created a new rhythm cadence
rampa to counter compas, but it was only in a spirit of competition.
The rhythm of cadence rampa was identical to compas except for
the addition of the second drum that sounded on every fourth beat.

The Sicot brothers, Maestro Webert Sicot and brilliant composer
Raymond Sicot, well regarded in the Caribbean for their rigorous
harmonic skills, introduced the meringue-cadence to the Caribbean,
specifically the French Antilles of Martinique & Guadeloupe around
1962 where it spread to Dominica.[6] From the 60s to the 70s, Dominica,
Guadeloupe and Martinique were replete with cadence bands. A few
of them were Selecta, La Perfecta, Les Aiglons, Grammacks,
Exile One, Les Vikings de Guadeloupe,
Abel Zenon et son combo, etc. ( source = Wikipedia )

Ryco-Jazz – Fantastique Ryco-Jazz Hit Parade

Ryco-Jazz, front

Ryco-Jazz was founded by Henri Bowane in 1958. The name was
composed from Rythme Congolais, Ry-Co in short. From 1960 to
1964 they toured west Africa and later moved to Martinique where
they were very popular. Their styles varied from tumbele, biguine,
bolero and rumba. Back in Paris in 1971 the group splits up and
spreads. Jean Serge Essous for instance went back to join Les
Bantous de la Capitale..enjoy..
