Description

Throughout the week before Easter, roads all over Haiti swell with bands of revelers, dancers, singers and percussionists, travelling from vodou temples to their villages. Rara and gaga are wildly festive sounds, featuring unusual percussion and wind instruments, and often bawdy lyrics. These remastered recordings from the streets, plazas and cemeteries of Haiti and the Dominican Republic are accompanied by extensive notes by Verna Gillis and Gage Averill. Reissue of Folkways 4531.
