AllMusic Review by

Martinique fights back, or Saint Prix goes zouk -- at the time, a big shock for fans of pure chouval bwa, and anybody who had his earlier flute-and-percussion recording. So after the trauma subsides, what's the verdict? In a word, mixed. A couple of bland tracks are offset by several that blend traditional and zouk elements very effectively (after all, zouk simply built on tendencies already present in both islands).
