Jho Archer recorded more than 20 albums, most of them are collectors items that you’re can find at some special online stores…
From Africa to Haiti, from Haiti to New Orleans. By slave ship, freighter, on horseback and on foot. This is how one of the oldest form of expression – voodoo – come the newest, most fluid music – jazz. The union of the two gave a new dimension to music that has changed the meaning of each. No longer is voodoo merely a charocheristic of race’s culture. Never again can jazz be a musical style of one particular country – for the sound of his marriage expresses the evolution of the whole world.
