Rudolph J. Lord and his group of young percussionists, also known as Mansa Musa, have accompanied many Trinidad and Tobago musicians like Andre Tanker, Brother Valentino, Black Stalin and Lancelot Layne. Bear Family’s subsidiary Cree Records has re-released Mansa’s first album that features his own compositions. It shows that he has a more comprehensive knowledge of and affinity to African-based West-Indian rhythms than any other of his contemporaries. ,

Rudolph J. Lord is a political activist and known for his in-depth knowledge of African and Carribbean history and culture. Because of his affiliation to the Black Power Movement in Trinidad he got imprisoned for several years on a prison island called Nelson Island during the early 1970s. In 1976 he recorded his debut album of original compositions with his own group, the Mansa Musa Drummers. The album is dealing with his African origin and the enslavement of his ancestors. Along with Lancelot Layne and others, Mansa Musa has seriously contributed to the development of a musical form called ‚Rapso’.

18 Sep 2016

Ganz eigene, faszinierende Musik

Good Times 5/16 "Diese Aufnahmen zeigen in beeindruckender Weise, wie eng die traditionelle "Call and Response"-Technik mit der westindischen Musik verzahnt ist, wie sich Stimmen und Trommeln gegenseitig befeuern, wie aus scheinbar unvereinbaren Komponenten eine ganz eigene, faszinierende Musk entstand."

Press Archive - Mansa Musa - Hold On To The Faith 180g LP - ugly things #43 MANSA MUSA - Hold on to the Faith (CreelBear Family) LP Although another excellent archi-val find from Trinidad and Tobego by Cree Records, this is far more than just a Carribean release. In fact, the occasional steel drum is the only indication that this is a West Indies record at all.
