In the Jungle there Lies a trace, of connection between the Earth and Space...

This first sentence of the spoken-poetry inspired track Afro Map of Space enlightens us about the musical texture of this brand new release by Franck Biyong and Massak. From the traditional rhythms of Central Africa to the swinging beats of Congo Square, the words, messages, hopes and aspirations were always carried by the sheer power of the drums and embodied by the beauty of dancing. In Basaa, Massak means Spiritual Dance...

Musical wisdom was only explored to the fullest while being taught within a secret order. The Electric Voodoo Ground you’ll discover here (where else but on Colored-Inc?) is surrounded by late night mystery and close cousin to the Electric Miles Pan-African sonic experiences of the mid 70’s. These multidirectional rhythms and harmonies are leaning towards Freedom of the Soul... and Initiation for an African Renaissance.
