Next up on Gilles Peterson's respected Brownswood imprint is New York City legend and purveyor of spiritual life music Joe Claussell, in collaboration with Cuban singer Dayme Arocena. Her second album Cubafonia was released last year on the label and was 'a tour through the deep-rooted rhythms permeating her native Cuba.' Her work encompasses the rich, diverse musical makeup of the country she grew up in and looks outward to the world that she's spent the past two years travelling. Claussell's Sacred Rhythm Mix of "Yambu" is a right scorcher that reaches near tribal moments, as those syncopated polyrhythms entrance you beneath Aracena's powerful and soaring vocals. Completely evocative and life affirming stuff right here!
