BONGO,
BACKRA
AND COOLIE:
JAMAICAN ROOTS

VOLUME 1
   Released by Folkways.
$18

BONGO, BACKRA AND COOLIE:
Jamaican Roots, Volume 1
37 minutes
Originally released in 1975.

Nice real life examples of Kumina, Convince and Hindustani music. Kumina is a magico-religious cult with strong African roots, their ceremonies include singing, drumming, dancing and spirit possession. Convince meetings are most usually held as memorial services for deceased cult members. Hindustani music is heavily rooted from India and is sung in what was called by the performers as "Hinu language".

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!
