Following the release of his ode to Haiti, Evening Dust Choir, in 2012, Joseph Shaffer is back with his collaborative project, Slow Machete, and their new six track EP, Mango Tree.

Taken from the latest release, 'Gray Eyed Bird' is a fine example of Shaffer's electro-meets-world styling, where outtakes of Haitian choral recordings are merged with percussive samples of actual machetes and Caribbean rhythms.

The result is a sweetly upbeat number, which you can purchase here, and know that all the proceeds will go to support education and agricultural programs in Cap Haitien.
