General Note:
This session features primarily solo vocal performances of ballads and sailor songs. Some of the recordings can be found on Caribbean Voyage: The French Antilles (R0ounder 1733).
General Note:
Solo voice. This comic ballad resembles the English ballad Our Goodman. The singer says he learned it from a recording. Towards the middle of the performance, the singer imitates a woman’s singing voice as part of a dialogue between a man and a woman. The performance is followed by a short discussion about the history of the song.
General Note:
vocal
