                                      Reissue of this fascinating and unbelievably obscure fusion album from Haiti, recorded in 1983! Conceived with some of the most prominent Hatian musicians (Raoul Denis Jr, Arius Jospeh, Oswald Durand, Jacques Fatier....) and his own brother Joël, Mushy Widmaier's opus brings us to a deep spiritual wonderment where jazz mingles with creole melancholy.
