AllMusic Review by

Konexyon is another group from French Guiana produced by Gilles Jonnais, an artist very much involved with the preservation of the traditional music of French Guiana. This album contains mostly straight-ahead zouk that is consistently solid, but fails to break any new ground to distinguish itself from many other albums of the style. The grooves are here, though, and that Antillean swing comes through loud and clear. Much of the zouk that comes out of French Guiana seems to have more bounce that of the French Antilles. With that in mind, this album has some soulful vocals and would please lovers of zouk. Not a landmark album, but one that has some very danceable tracks.
