Mac Gregor – In Abidjan (Rare and in High demand !!
Rare and in High demand Afro digital Soul EP, recorded in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) in 1981. Originally from Martinique, Clem Marise Voltine aka Mac Gregor moved to Abidjan in 1979 searching for, what she called, her 'negritude quest'. She sang about her love for her adoptive city until her death in April 2004 at CHU of Abidjan, Trechville Hospital. A visionary composer, poet and singer, mixing Creole, French and Nouchi, she made a brilliant musical bridge between the West-Indies and Ivory Coast, backed by a soulful group of top Ivorian musicians such as the great Houon Pierre. This unique and must have record is a pure dancefloor killer and will definitely be the next Afro Tropical Hit of the next decade! Fully Licensed in Abidjan, remastered at Carvery Studio on a 12inch vinyl (45 RPM).
