Kaseko is a musical genre from Suriname. It is a fusion of numerous popular and folk styles derived from Europe, Africa and the Americas. It is rhythmically complex, with percussion instruments including skratji (a very large bass drum) and snare drums, as well as saxophone, trumpet and occasionally trombone. Singing can be both solo and choir. Songs are typically call-and-response, as are Creole folk styles from the area, such as kawina. The term Kaseko may be derived from Kasékò, a Guianan creole dance.
Lieve Hugo (Gentle Hugo in English) is by far the most renowned artist in this genre. All songs on this album were originally recorded in 1974. He sadly died of a heartattack in 1975, ten days before the independance of Suriname. 30 years after his death he is still hugely popular and if you play this CD you will understand why. This CD is remastered in 1990. Brought to you by TQMP. The Quality Music Project).
