8543: RE: 8538: JAMES THE SINGER : Three replies

From: Simido@aol.com

His name is James Germain.  I think he may be based in France but I know
perfoms in Haiti as well.

I dont have names of his CDs handy at the moment,but I am sure another
list member 
will provide them. 

I first became aware of James when he added his wonderful voice to
vocals/harmonies on "Ou Pran La Vi'm" - a song on Mozayik's first record,
sung by 
Emeline Michel.

-Markus Schwartz
percussionist, Mozayik.

I believe the last name of the Haitian singer is
Germain, James Germain I think is his full name.



From: Karen Davis <kdavis@marygrove.edu>

I do not know James the singer, but did see Aime Cesaire's Roi Christophe
performed years ago (in 1980s?) at Wayne State University's Bonstelle
Theatre, in Detroit, Michigan. Since then, I have had my Caribbean
Humanities students read in this play as well as his Un Tempete, and believe
both could make superb films.
