Some Vodou Djaz (Voodoo Jazz)

Yep! For four years, from 1990 to 1994, I have approached this genre within the spectrum of Haitian music. It is a fusion of voodoo rhythms and Jazz from the improvisational aspect of the latter. The name of the band then was “Gifrants, Sanba Daki” and I had the privilege to have the collaboration of extremely talented musicians such as: Jimmy Daniel on drums, Jean-Baptiste “Bonga” Gaston on percussion, Jacqz Vincent on keys, Carol Chaikin on flute, soprano and tenor sax, Steve…. (He played with Little Richard for some time) and I was the singer and the guitarist.

This genre was “hot”. We have recorded one of our rehearsals and sent to Larry Brown of SOB’s and to Nell’s. We did have a gig at both places which was pretty amazing at that time. Here are two tracks of live recording at “La Chaumière” in Queens, NY.
