General Note:
This session features different groups of singers performing drinking songs (chanté abwè), game songs, songs and music for dancing, and work songs. Some of the game songs can be heard on Caribbean Voyage: Brown Girl in the R0ing (R0ounder CD 1716).
General Note:
This song begins as a ballad sung solo, a cappella. However, toward the end of the recording (and after some discussion), it segues into a dance rhythm where the audience participates with handclapping and foot stomping.
