I recently stumbeled upon that wonderful Haitian collector
named ‘Haiti Direct’, ( small pic ) the very last track is one
by this group, Orchestre Tropicana d’Haiti. I had this 1975
album waiting for this opportunity, when you heard it I’m
sure you’re gonna purchase the cd as well, check..

Hi Moos, <br /><br />I bought that Haiti comp a while back and it is indeed fabulous.<br />It is true to say that one reason I knew I'd want to buy that CD is because of all the wonderful compas and other Haitian styles you've put up here over the years.<br /><br />If it wasn't for this blog, I am pretty sure I wouldn't have bought that CD. And there have been so many other cases
Haïti Direct is a magnificent compilation indeed. I'm excited to hear this LP. Thanks!<br /><br />Yann
..to be honest I must admit it was one of our French visitors that made me aware of this type of music some years ago..haven't heard from him for a long time, are you still there Arnaud ?
Hallo Moos,<br />My interest for this music started with the Dance!Cadence!-compilation on Globe Style in the mid-eighties.<br />….and yes, I also bought the Haïti Direct double-lp…. so I'm really looking forward to listening to this one.<br />Thanks again very much.<br /><br />Wim
