Ostinato Records presents “Pour Me A Grog”, a compilation of Raw Funana music, a sibling of Cumbia, distilled from the Badiu masters of the accordion. Crafted in the isolated northern heartlands of Cabo Verde’s Santiago Island, where revolt and rebellion against injustice courses through its history’s veins
Hypnotic notes on aged accordions tuned and flavored in ways found nowhere but Santiago are infused with inviting baselines, raucous rhythms, blade-on-iron percussion, and the bubbling lyricism and lament of the island’s finest ambassadors.
Best enjoyed with grog, Cabo Verde’s local moonshine made from sugarcane crushed by bulls. Imbibe responsibly, listen carefully, and dance recklessly.
180g vinyl LP gatefold accompanied by a 12-page booklet.
