Ramses Revolution Ramses Revolution
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Flora Fauna
When your selling point is claiming to be the premiere Afrobeat band in Stockholm–a claim that probably isn't heavily contested-the gimmick tag probably isn't far off. Like Japanese consumer products labeled with awkward English phrases, Ramses Revolution could be just another cute but ultimately awkward cultural exchange, but these Swedes definitely kick out the jams. Reggae-influenced singer Samuel Lanciné Gustafsson throws down soul on the mic, and the rest of the nine-piece ensemble lays down typical, but ultimately tight, rhythms. Such a solid performance makes notions of geography irrelevant.
