THE VIKINGS were Guadeloupe’s first true rock stars. They embodied the same spirit of liberty and anti-conformism as Led Zeppelin in 1960s Britain, The Impressions in U.S. soul around the same time and Ornette Coleman in the jazz world a few years earlier. They might not play out-and- out rock, but these young hipsters with their unorthodox dress sense reinvented the music of the tropics and shook up its conventions to such an extent that their songs still sound like the soundtrack of a society in the throes of radical change. Their popularity went through the roof after their debut gigs at La Cocoteraie, one of the trendiest clubs in the Gosier area of Pointe-à- Pitre. A unique mix of Biguine, funk, Latin, Compas and early zouk sounds.
