Editorial Reviews

2014 two CD collection, the first in-depth exploration of the vibrant and varied colors of Haiti's music from the early '60s to the late '70s. Haiti Direct 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. Featuring in-depth liner notes and interviews with some of the musicians and producers that shaped the sound, this set is the first widely available compilation to celebrate the unique and innovative sounds of Haiti.

5.0 out of 5 stars a double cd treasure April 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard a track on my local community station, by Les Animateurs...thought at first it was West African...but there was something different.I had to have it and bought the cd!. This is such a treasure trove of great music..there is that vibrancy that is common with the african West coast..a love of guitars, backed up with sax, vocals, percussion...and a BIG dose of Caribbean vibe. There is also a distinct streak of a darker side...some vocals that reflect a different energy, not a church choir inspired harmony.
enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars nice introduction to haitian music. April 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is a fine collection of mainstream haitian music. it features lots of the good orchestras. this style of music has lots of ringing guitars and funky horns set to a gentle dance rhythm. i strongly recommend this. it is nice to see a fine record company like strut branching out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected. April 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I suppose I expected the modern "compay" music I danced to back in the 70s and 80s.
The old school stuff just did not move me in any appreciable way. In terms of dollars spent,
it was a waste.
