This song is one of the most famous Haitian folk songs. I have arranged it, used it as an example in my book Kantik Natif, Volim I, in order to codify the “natif” concept. It is also one among a few others that I will arrange with this instrumentation–clairnet and piano. All exclusive rights have been assigned to the “Société de Recherche et de Diffusion de la Musique Haïtienne” (SRDMH) based in Montreal. All archives are held at UQÀM (Université du Québec à Montréal). Anyone interested in having those scores should contact Mr. Jean-Claude Nazon, the current President of the SRDMH.
I invite you with great pleasure and pride to listen to this version. Peace!
