I love this track — it’s a looser and much longer version of Tabou Combo’s better known “Mabouyé”. You can imagine the crowds going bananas to this groove. Like a lot of great Haitian records from the 1970s, Soukoué Ko Ou was recorded in Brooklyn. Translated from Haitian creole, the title means “We’re in your care” or “We’re depending on you to care for us.”

I have this record. This is actually a kassav project. They recorded about 4 or 5 LPs under this name.
