Currently Listening To: Slow Machete

Slow Machete consists of 6 female vocalist from Cap Haitien and an American electronic artist currently living in DC.   Musically, the resulting sound is a celebration (think Toro Y Moi, Holy Other, Gold Panda mixed with radio and street recordings).  Their aim is to use the group’s collective gifts to respectfully capture and share the spirit of the Haitian culture, while supporting education and agriculture programs in Cap Haitien.

The band released a 2013 EP called “Mango Tree” (check out “Gray Eyed Bird”), but I was more drawn to a track “Santiago” from their 2012 album.

“Gray Eyed Bird” from Mango Tree EP (2013).

“Santiago” from Evening Dust Choir LP (2012).
