#855: Haitian song Choucoune : Manigat replies (fwd)


"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.
