Creole Choir of Cuba
Across their music, this 10-member vocal ensemble from Camagüey makes the sounds of old and new Haiti blend with the rhythms of pre-revolutionary Cuba. The Choirwhose Cuban name, Desandann, means "descendents"sings freedom songs in Spanish, French, and (most of the time) Creole on their uplifting Real World debut, Tande-La, formalizing and embellishing music made by Haitian slaves brought over to harvest sugar.
