Details

Like the incredible diversity of cultures that have left their mark on the culture of the West Indies, this album comprises music from many islands in the Lesser Antilles, demonstrating the power of cross-cultural exchange. Here, European waltzes and quadrilles fuse with African percussion ensembles, epic stories of Hindu gods are sung in call-and-response, and "bamboo bands" perform over the din of the cicadas on a warm tropical night.
