Cymande

Cymande

With the release of their self-titled debut album in 1972, Cymande emerged as innovators of the black British music scene.

Artist: Cymande

Genre: Funk

Label: Partisan Records

Release date:


Cymande's debut LP housed in a gatefold jacket and paper inner sleeve. Remastered for vinyl in 2022 at Abbey Road Studios, and pressed on Translucent Orange Crush Vinyl for the very first time.

Taking influences from their Guyanese and Jamaican roots, the band fused reggae bass lines, Afro-tinged Nyabinghi percussion, psychedelic touches, and American-style funk into a unique sound they’ve since dubbed as “Nyah-rock.” While they were embraced in the US, back home they were largely ignored and soon forgotten by a music business beset by prejudice against homegrown black talent.

About the artist

Cymande are a British funk group that was originally active in the early 1970s. The band name derives from a calypso word for "dove", which symbolises peace and love; "Dove" is also the title of one of their best-known songs
