#461: Guy Durosier Concert Tribute September 26, 1999 (fwd)

From: jean <jean@acd-pc.com>

One of the reasons for a concert honoring the recently departed
Guy Durosier  is to found a music institution  capable of  promoting and
conserving  some of Haiti's best music, most of which recorded many
years ago. And perhaps help bring to the fore some of our genres still
unknown to the world.  Especially those  which combined the big band 
sound  with some of our great number of vodou rhythms (e.g. Jazz des
Jeunes, Issa El Saieh, Orchestre Hotel El Rancho and Orchestre Hotel
