• Cymande (pronounced Sah-mahn-day) are a legendary funk group formed in 1971 in London by musicians from Guyana, Jamaica and Saint Vincent. Their name was derived from a calypso word for Dove, symbolizing peace and love.
• The band were signed by producer John Schroeder to his Alaska label in the UK (and Janus in North America). Cymande went on to release three albums in the early-to-mid 1970s.
• Cherry Red Records are proud to reissue all three original Cymande albums.
• Their third LP, Promised Heights (1975), boasted the club classic ‘Brothers On The Slide’, which has been sampled and soundtracked many times.
