Cosmic Forrest

Cymande's 'Bra' is one of those tireless tracks that epitomizes the very idea of Dance music for me, but nearly everything they've done manages to be deeply impressionable. Here is 'Equatorial Forrest' and if Cosmic is defined by a beguiling mix of Rock, Afro & Disco then this track is easily a near perfect example. Genre definitions and limitations aside, it's hypnotic, a little bluesy and simply wonderful. It originally appears on their 'Promised Heights' album from 1974. Someone recently said, don't miss out on anything they've done which is exactly what I would say too...
