Exuma — Exuma (album)

ExumaExuma (album)
★★★★☆

Exuma is a district of the Bahamas, consisting of over 360 islands. Heaven, Hell, God, Devil, zombies and angels — all are to be found there. The soul of Exuma, that also happens to be the pseudonym of the singer, cries out in agony and in search for answers to life, death and afterlife. Musically, Exuma somehow resembles Captain Beefheart, yet there is no sign of blues here, only the raw, heavy sounds of a drum, calling and drawing you into something that feels like a tribal ritual rather than music as we usually know it.
