V.A. - HAITI DIRECT. BIG BAND, MINI JAZZ & TWOUBADOU SOUNDS, 1960-1978 (2LP)


"Literally years in the making, our Haiti Direct collection, compiled by Hugo Mendez of Sofrito, is out and available in stores. The two disc collection celebrates the overlooked musical legacy of Haiti, going beyond Ra-ra and voodoo stereotypes to trace the development of a unique sound that echoed across the Caribbean, yet remains relatively under the radar outside of the region. Support from fans, press, and radio has been amazing, with BBC Radio 6 Music playlisting regularly, and the Sunday Times calling the collection "essential listening."." (label info) vinyl version includes CD, also available on CD
