General Note:
This session features a Gwoka ensemble performing traditional dance drum rhythms (toumblak and woulé), as well as wake songs and work songs. In his field log, Alan Lomax names a number of individuals who participated in this session. It is possible that most (if not all) of them are part of a group called “Les R0oses.” And, unless otherwise specified by Lomax, they are all listed as "possible" performers on the recordings in this session. Some of these recordings can be found on Caribbean Voyage: The French Antilles (R0ounder 1733).
