funny how things work

it is really funny how things work out. for the past i do not know how many months / years, i have been trying to remember the name of a band recommended by a good old friend back in high school (hi, courtney). today, i was reading the battles guest list on pf and it turns out that one of their favorite older songs at the moment happens to be by cymande (the band i was trying to remember all this time).

cymande was a funk / r n b / soul band dating back to the early seventies. the band was based out of london but had members from africa and jamaica. they released three albums in the 70’s. i got into these guys at about the same time i was digging into curtis mayfield and james brown, its “kinda” on the same wavelength. check it.
