4674: Re: #4657: Re: #4604: Laleau reminisces on Marchands vini (fwd)


When I was teaching seventh and eighth grade in Union School, Port-au-Prince, 
in 1969, there was a controversy about the very same phrase... as I recall, 
Samir Mourra was singing "Marchands di riz" and a group of other students 
took nationalistic umbrage at it, saying he was a Syrian and was insulting 
the national anthem... I don't remember if they engaged in fisticuffs over 
it, but I think, in fact, they did.
