MUSIC OF HAITI
VOLUME 1: Folk Music of Haiti
26 minutes
Originally released in 1952.

This is an early recording of many styles of music found in Haiti.  On this recording we can hear examples from the Arada-Nago or Congo-Guinee cult, work songs, an invocation to the loa and ezilie, social songs, music for the deceased, spirit conversations, and carnival music as well as other examples of religious and secular music.

Re-released by Folkways in small 'to-order' quantities, these CDs do not have cover art but do include copies of orginal notes.  These are very rare CDs and are not sold in stores.  We special order these from folkways and have them in stock for instant shipment!
