Kaveri Special

Some days I get some mad emails arriving with new music, like this one, about an afrobeat outfit from Finland. How wild is that? 

Kaveri Special dropped their debut album recently, and it's funky, groovy time. The band tell me "Our music pays tribute to classic African guitar music from the 70s and 80s, especially soukous and highlife. We did a C cassette master for the album to get some extra vintage feel and warmth into it."

Explosive and so joyful, an amazement for the ears. You need to hear this!!" - Paris DJs (FRA)
"A unique Afro Funk group from Finland - similar to some of the trippier African work reissued in recent years" - Dusty Groove (USA)
"Well recommended listening" - Eddy de Clercq, Soul Safari label and blog (NED)

Out now on digital/vinyl.
