Nemours Jean Baptiste & Son Super Ensemble
Inspiration, IBO Records 1967

Nemours Jean Baptiste is considered to be the father of
Haïtian compas. He started out in 1955 based in Port-au-
Prince, Haïti’s capital. We had three albums so far, from
1966, 1973 and 1976. Read more about the man on the
sites linked below. During Nemours Jean Baptiste’s early
career he played with Webert Sicot in Conjunto Inter-
nacional. After the latter had started a new style in
a new group the two quarreled over the originality.
They finally fought out their differences in a soccer
match between their bands. It ended in a 1-1 tie.
