#855: Haitian song Choucoune : Manigat replies
"Yellow Bird" is not a translation of Oswald Durand's famous poem "Choucune".
The name of the composer is Moleart Morton, a Haitian. I am not quite sure of
the spelling of his first name.
Two books can assist anyone interested in the histoy of "Choucoune":
1) VICTOR Rene : Choucoune ...
2) DUMERVE Constantin : Histoire de la musique haitienne.
For more accurate references on those books, see; BISSAINTHE Max:
Dictionnaire de Bibliographie Haitienne.
