Strut Records presents a comprehensive new series from the archives of French Caribbean label Disques Debs, out of Guadeloupe. Volume 1, compiled by Hugo Mendez (Sofrito) and Emile Omar (Radio Nova), collects works from the label/studio's first decade, many of which were recorded in the back of the late Henri Debs' shop in Pointe-a-Pitre. From big band orchestras to local talents to foreign artists passing through town, the collection captures a fertile time when the créole music of Guadeloupe and Martinique was beginning to reverberate well beyond the region's shorelines.Coverage on music sites Official website
