DRUMS OF TRINIDAD:

Tribal Rhythms from Carriacou

$18

Released by Folkways.


DRUMS OF TRINIDAD: Tribal Rhythms of Carriacou
31 minutes
Originally released in 1956.

Most of the selections recorded here stem from 'everyday' activities: the boat launching, the fishing, harvesting, dancing. The unspoiled people of Carriacou, for example, do not limit their drumming to the narrow requirements of special occasions. On the other hand, neither do they take a boat launching lightly. Their use of drum rhythms is natural and unaffected as an accompaniment to the events of daily life.

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!
