Surfing on the shores of Java and Casablanca! 2 unexpected tales from the Beat generation. Tony Turpijn and his Evergreens fulfill the dream of every pantropical music lover with a silky instrumental rhythm ’n blues take on the Sundanese love song Es Lilin (Ice Lolly). Link Wray meets Mulatu Astatke meets Oslan Husein in Rotterdam, 1965. Obscure formation Les Jaguar’s de Casablanca beat the Shadows with a boss version of the surf classic Gonzales. The band consists of a French/Spanish guitar section and a Moroccan rhythm section featuring the eccentric drummer/percussionist Jauk Armal, the “Okay Temiz from Casablanca”. Gonzales was originally recorded in 1962 and released by La Voix Du Maghreb in Morocco on an ultra collectible EP, which is now impossible to find.
