Belgium based Latin Soul and Afro Cuban group Chakachas first released this self-titled album on the Belgian Blue Elephant label and the mix is a melting pot of styles, some which work better than others. ‘Stories’ is a snaking, percussive effort with a lighthearted touch, ‘Soul Dad’ is a laid back effort that blends some Latino horns with an exotica twist while ‘Bantu’ draws directly from Africa with its almost chanted vocals and polyrhythms. ‘Love Love Love’ has a collision of soundtrack and lounge about it, ‘Oye Me’ again goes back to West African and sounds like authentic Hi-life while the adult themed ‘Party’ has a decidedly risqué content that must have raised eyebrows at the time!
