RENE LACAILLE & BOB BROZMAN: DIGDIG

TUG CD 1025 Riverboat Records/World Music Network

 

 

 


One of the masters of intercultural musical collaboration is back. Following his two quirky and highly entertaining releases with Okinawan musician Takashi Hirayasu, Bob Brozman now takes listeners on an aural trip to the island of Réunion, home of renowned musician René Lacaille.

Brozman’s slide and blues guitar work blends well with Lacaille’s guitar and accordion virtuosity, ranging through music that evokes France and the Caribbean with some underlying African percussion and bits of Hawaii sprinkled in for good measure. The bouncy “Pondaurat” sounds downright Brazilian in its tribute to a village in France (which, when I did a Web search, was described with the phrase “Afflicted, this commune does not have an office of tourism!”).

The liner notes explain the sega and maloya styles that define Réunion’s music and describe the meeting of the two musicians, enhancing the value of this unique CD.
