Lizzy Mercier Descloux - Mambo Nassau
This product is currently sold out.
Mambo Nassau’s skip through styles is like a tour of Lizzy Mercier Descloux’s musical DNA, embracing mutant funk, disco and punk.
Chris Blackwell’s Compass Point Studios provided a hermetically sealed environment into which the island’s relaxed atmosphere did not seep. Instead, music from within those four walls – made by Tom Tom Club and Grace Jones – had the effect of a feedback loop. The album, meanwhile, reflected the growing confidence of Descloux as a musician, an increasing interest in African music and the input of two new collaborators: synthesizer innovator Wally Badarou and Jamaican engineer Steve Stanley, the album’s de facto producer.
