This CD is an excellent source of African drums and Caribbean style beats. Listening for pure enjoyment or dancing to the beats of the music, one is sure to find a tune on this CD for as a pleasant experience.
This is where it all started.

"The music is ok, a very good representation of the genre. Track one consists of drums and flute, Track two contains vocals and percussion, and so it goes with similar variations. A valuable CD for teachers, dance schools and background music for stores etc. But hey, don't forget... great listening as well if you are into this kind of music. Very raw stuff; the very basics of music's heartbeat are here. Osibisa, Santana, Dibango, Masekela and many jazz masters can look here for their roots. It does not get more visceral than this.The sleeve contains no credits or useful information at all, save for the track titles as is sometimes the case with re-releases of LPs (if this is the case here). This lack of information is an insult to the artists performing on this CD as well as to the listeners, especially as this album is likely to be sought-out by music connoisseurs and students looking for that primeordial rarity.A million demerits to the producers, who do not fail to mention their company name. One only hopes that when these guys die, someone will forget to include their names on their gravestones."

"[...]. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. For those of you who know a little about Haitian music, and who like to dance/choreograph, this cd is excellent. The rhythms are very clear. Unfortunately there is no information provided about the performers, or the culture of origin. Nevertheless, for dancers, dance teachers,or those who like to listen to some good traditional drumming, you can't go wrong with this one."
