Haitian vocalist and composer André Charles was a Romantic who thoroughly appreciated Une femme qui belle (a beautiful woman). Songs composed for the Port-au-Prince-based Ibo Combo, popular during the 1970s, are nostalgic tributes to le Belle Bagaille (Beautiful Thing) that nod to peyizan (peasant) folk practices.
