The World Of

by Coupe Cloue

This 1979 release has to be one of the Coupe Cloue's very finest. Every track is catchy to the max, egg-full of the jaunty charm that defines Haitian mini-jazz,Coupe Cloue's always had the capacity to beguile all over again, however many recordings he issues. But this 1979 release has to be one of the man's very finest. Every track is catchy to the max, egg-full of the jaunty charm that defines Haitian mini-jazz, and rich in simply wonderful guitar. ~ John Storm Roberts, All Music Guide

Album Notes
An enigmatic guitarist and singer, Coupé Cloué acquired this nickname (translated as "kickout") from his prowess on the soccer field. He is famous, or rather notorious, for his lyrics containing sexual double-entendre, long "raps" ranging from risqué to romantic, and social satire. His "compas mamba" (peanut compas) seems very African, with a guitar style resembling West African highlife and the use of Cuban bongo drums and bamboo tubes played with sticks in addition to the standard conga and drum kit. Appearing on many album covers wearing African clothing, Coupé Cloué, with his shaved head, cuts a striking figure. This may explain why he was given the title "Le Roi" (the king) when he played in the Ivory Coast, West Africa, in 1975. Of all the electric Caribbean bands, Coupé Cloué has the strongest African sound, which shows the strength of his roots, for he claims he never heard African music before his 1975 trip.
