Creole and Yoruba Voices

$16
   Released by Rounder.


CARIBBEAN VOYAGE: GRENADA
CREOLE AND YORUBA VOICES
66 minutes
Recorded by Alan Lomax.

GRENADA: CREOLE AND YORUBA VOICES: Known for producing talented calypsonians (including the Mighty Sparrow himself), Grenada is home to much more. Heard here for the first time are rare recordings of Carnival bands, kalinda drumming, work songs, the cocoa lute (a musical bow), and the deeply spiritual Yoruba songs of Shango or "African Work" - a vital but little-known branch of Afro-American religion linking Grenada with other expressions of the Yoruba diaspora in Cuba, Brazil, Trinidad, and New York.

Caribbean Voyage: Released for the first time, Alan Lomax's legendary 1962 recordings of the rich and many-stranded musical traditions of the Lesser Antilles and eastern Caribbean: work songs, pass-play and story songs, calypso, East Indian chaupai, and steel band music, reflecting the Central and West African, French, English, Celtic, Spanish and East Indian contributions to Caribbean culture.

The Alan Lomax Collection: The Alan Lomax Collection gathers together the American, European and Caribbean field recordings, world music compilations, and ballad operas of writer, folklorist and ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. Remastered to 24-bit digital from the original field recordings. Contains previously unreleased recordings
