With the release of their 1972 self-titled debut album, Cymande emerged as innovators of the Black British music scene. Taking influences from their Guyanese and Jamaican roots, the band fused reggae bass lines, Afro-tinged Nyabinghi percussion, psychedelic touches and American-style funk instrumentation into a sound they dubbed “Nyah-rock.” It has been heralded as the best Brit funk album of all time. Remastered LP with gatefold jacket.
