Image: 1604584 Exquisit Franco-Creole supergroup Les Pythons de la Fournaise (named after the great volcano on the Reunion island) are rewarding us with their 2nd effort, "Salut Les Pythons !".

More songs, more groove, more emotion in this exciting long-player where the band show they not only can compose amazing tracks and develop their interpretation of classic Sega-Lontan (typical music genre from Reunion, Mauritius and surrounding islands), but also open their sound to broader, yet specific influences, ranging from 60's/70's psychedelia to Eastern harmonies or African rhythms. In this LP the work on vocals is stunning, the 2-female duet in "Maloya Ton Tisane" is a delight, as well as Reunion-native Rene Cadet's emotion in songs like "Pardon" .

The combination between percussion and drums is extremely tight, yet supple and true to the unique groove of Sega music. Tracks like "Ton Ti Gueul Rose" are a pure expression of the band's inventivity - merciless Arp synthesizer and electric guitar galopping through a frenetic rhythm.

Produced by the Catapulte team, this LP also benefits from a beautiful screen-printed artwork with a hand- glued photograph, different for each Vinyl copy - a unique object!
