Readers who enjoyed Socialist Worker’s interview with photographer Leah Gordon on her new book Kanaval (www.socialistworker.co.uk//art.php?id=21730) will love this new album.
Rara is the music played throughout Kanaval.
It’s an anarchic folk-meets-punk collision of drums, voices and bamboo sticks, which all creates an exciting, energising soundtrack.
Rara bands tour the countryside for days at a time accosting people, car drivers and anyone in their way, demanding payment before they move on.
The crowd of musicians and singers gets bigger all the time.
