SYNTHESIZE THE SOUL: ASTRO-ATLANTIC HYPNOTICA FROM THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS 1973 - 1988

Through 18 diverse tracks, this compilation offers a timely revelation of how immigration to Europe and the United States from the Cape Verde Islands in the 1980s gave us an alternate history of electronic music, almost a decade ahead of its time, as traditional Funana rhythms met the synthesizer.

Bio

During the time that Uncle Jim O’Neal ran Rural Rhythm back in the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, he recorded several hundred albums, and captured a unique cross-section of tradition-based American music.

The oldest of these songs crossed the ocean in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but all of them have endured, and they’re rendered here in performances that will endure. This is a vital part of the music that America gave to the world

On this 15 song collection, we hear the traditional side of bluegrass played by some of its finest legends and pioneers in bluegrass such as Red Smiley, Hylo Brown, Earl Taylor, J.E. Mainer, Mac Martin, Raymond Fairchild, “Tater” Tate and more culled from the treasure trove of over 4,000 recorded masters produced over the past 60 years by Rural Rhythm Records.

Each song was remastered from the original master tapes by Steve Hoffman, (a leading mastering engineer in the High End Audio market). The end results are some of the best sounding authentic and historic Classic Bluegrass Music available today!
