Cymande - Cymande (2024 Reissue)

They’re the greatest band you’ve never heard of. Unsung heroes whose music was political, spiritual, and generations ahead of its time. Their story has never been told. Until now...

Cymande, a group of black British musicians who all came to the UK from the Caribbean as children, released three brilliant albums in quick succession in the early 70s and were embraced in the USA. But, in the UK, they faced a music business beset by prejudice against home grown black talent and were largely ignored. They split in 1975. However, their music lived on, as successive generations of artists and fans found and embraced their songs.

Cymande’, was remastered at Abbey Road Studios in 2022, and is presented in a gatefold sleeve pressed on black vinyl.
Cymande were also the subject of an acclaimed documentary titled ‘Getting It Back: The Story Of Cymande’, which had its world premiere screening at SXSW. ‘Getting It Back’ was directed by Tim Mackenzie- Smith and features interviews with a galaxy of musicians and producers influenced and enthralled by their music, including Mark Ronson, Jim James, Kool DJ Red Alert, DJ Maseo and Louie Vega.
