This release features the Voodoo Drums of Haiti and was recorded by Soul Jazz Records in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Unlike Hollywood's version of Voodoo (Zombies, the walking dead and human sacrifices!), Voodoo is the alive and thriving African-derived religion in Haiti and this CD is a contemporary recording of the musical rhythms of Voodoo.
Voodoo is at the heart of all African music in the new world. That is to say it is the link between the music of Nigeria and the music of Cuba's Afro-Cuban music (Salsa and Santeria) and Brasil's African based musics (Samba and Candomble).
The music of Voodoo is based around complex African rhythms. When played at Voodoo cerimonies these drums bring down the spirits of Voodoo into worshippers.
This CD continues Soul Jazz's exploration of African/Latin/Brazilian connections that they have previously visited with releases such as Nu Yorica, Brasil and Santeria. Voodoo music has rarely been released in this country and all of these complex rhythms are unique to Haiti.
