Finally !

We grinded it slowly grain by grain,.. we rolled it and prepared and then burned it just right so you can hold in your hands our very first musical tortilla . . . guaranteed GMO-free !

We put in all our hearts, our sweat and our souls, well surrounded by Jean Massicotte, jedi of the mixing board and Denis "Obi-wan" Wolff from Audiogram Records; half-shaman and half-midwife...

Some guests to spice it all up: Carole and Doriane from Doba-caracol, Nathalie Dussault , the little cora-playing elf, Bernard Falaise for his inspired soaring guitars.

Some laughs, some doubts, some intense moments, fears and uncertainties left on the side and growing confidence abounding, all were an important part in bringing you this succulent dish seasoned by the various sounds and smells from caribbean, latin, african and gypsy influences which create the arlequin's clothes of La Chango Family!

This album is dedicated to our little star: Tao.

Friends listeners, it is true that music, like ideas, belong to us all: but pirating indiscriminately all the songs that a collective or artist spends much time crafting and maturing, under the pretense that a store bought cd costs too much IS NOT A VALID ARGUMENT.

By doing that, you're only taking away from musicians who are trying to make ends meet and whose only chance at creating an uprising is through the fruits of their hard labour: Think twice whom you're screwing by doing so and how that will help getting more caravans out there on the road spreading humour and music around.
And if it pisses you off having to buy the albums from your favorite bands at the big multinational soul-suckers, BUY THEM AT A SHOW !!
