a type of music

The addition of beat and voodoo to the term Forth World Music comes from a Pittsburgh based band, Soma Mestizo to indicate a spoken, lyrical or chanted element and the use of very specific Carribean and West Indian rhythms.

You know it when you hear it...driving, grinding, uplifting, pulsing. A vaguely disturbing pleasure which somehow makes your feet move and your ass shake in ways you weren't sure you wanted it to.
