Pilon: The Pressure

Today we are starting with a photo of Santa Antao in the Cape Verde islands which I took when I was on holiday there 25 years ago. It's a bumpy old place.

The excuse for the photo is that we are featuring the work of Grupo Pilon today, with a couple of tracks taken from a compilation called "Leite Quente Funana de Cabo Verde", released last year on Obstinato Records.

In the interests of full transparency, Grupo Pilon are actually second generation Cape Verdeans who first met in Luxembourg back in the mid 1980s. But I didn't think you would have been as impressed by a photo of Luxembourg.

"Longi Di Bo" - Grupo Pilon

"Kanta Nstaba Nobu" - Grupo Pilon
