Caribbean Revels  Haitian Rara and Dominican Gaga CD

Caribbean Revels Haitian Rara and Dominican Gaga CD

  • $1599


Throughout the week before Easter, roads all over Haiti swell with bands of revelers, dancers, singers and percussionists, traveling from vodou temples to their villages. Rara and Gaga are wildly festive sounds, featuring unusual percussion and wind instruments, and often bawdy lyrics.
Remastered recordings from streets, plazas and cemeteries are accompanied by extensive notes by ethnomusicologists Verna Gillis and Gage Averill. 14 performances.
