9340: Re: 9328: Haitian folktales on disk, or CD (fwd)

From: E Vedrine <evedrine@hotmail.com>

I am sure you can find some (including a list of references from my Kreyol 
d-base). It's possible that they recorded some of Elsie Clews Parsons' 
research on that. I’d suggest also that you visit Indiana 
University-Blooming web for further references.
