Formed in 1971, the name Cymande comes from a Calypso word for Dove symbolising Peace & Love. Discovered by legendary producer John Schroeder who signed them to Janus Records and produced their debut single "The Message" which hit the top 20 in the USA.
After releasing three albums "Cymande", "Second time around" and "Promised Heights" which featured future Rare Groove and Breaks classics such as "Bra", "Brother's on the Slide" & "Fug" the band disbanded in 1974.
