French West Indies continue to deliver some obscure gems and this one, after a long
waiting in the dust and anonymity, resurfaces.
This private press was originally conceived in 1982, in a context where many French
Carribean musicians were searching for their own style and fusing traditional heritage
(Gwo-Ka, Bel Air, Biguine) and synthetic music.
Claude Rodap's Syn-Ka sums it all up and Granit Records is very pleased to begin
it's journey through music production by sharing this LP with you!
The LP come with an insert in french, english and japanese.

Mushi & Lakansyel recorded Koté Ou? in Haiti in 1983, marshalling the finest Hatian
musicians for a set of unusual jazz and creole fusion. The music is smooth, cool, and
distantly sad, and well worthy of rediscovery. This remastered vinyl reissue comes
with an insert in the French, English and Japanese languages, and is released by
Granit Records.
