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.

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!

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.

I hadn't heard much Haitian music before purchasing this album, but I will definitely will be getting more. A lot of African and Latin-American influences, which make for a very happy and high energy album.
