Toss your preconceptions. This is the sacred music of the West African diaspora who were brought as slaves to places like Haiti, Cuba, Brazil, & even New Orleans. With much variety, the music continues to live on and evolve. This collection features gorgeous choral vocals, evocative rhythms, and diverse interpretations by legends ranging from Baden Powell & Vinicius de Moreas of Brazil to the one and only Dr John. Really worth checking out.
