The Great Escape - Music & More

Merengue, calypso, gombey, goombay, santería, mento, spirituals, gwoka, son, soul jazz, descarga, biguine, pachanga, cha-cha-chá, blues, konpa, contredanse, bomba, shuffle, quadrille, mambo, voodoo, soul, quelbe, worksong, rumba, waltzes, son montuno... Often neglected, unsung and ignored, the music of the Caribbean no less formed the basis of much American music, which subsequently conquered the world. In turn, the USA left a deep mark on it, which produced an irresistible magic - from Cuba to New Orleans and all the way to Martinique, Haiti, Jamaica... Bruno Blum has selected the cream of the founding recordings of different Caribbean styles, recorded between 1949 and 1972, for this high-performance, wide-ranging anthology.
