The Alan Lomax Collection: The Alan Lomax Collection gathers together the American, European and Caribbean field recordings, world music compilations, and ballad operas of writer, folklorist and ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. Caribbean Voyage: Released for the first time, Alan Lomax's legendary 1962 recordings of the rich and many-stranded musical traditions of the Lesser Antilles and eastern Caribbean: work songs, pass-play and story songs, calypso, East Indian chaupai, and steel band music, reflecting the Central and West African, French, English, Celtic, Spanish and East Indian contributions to Caribbean culture. Carriacou Calaloo is a sampling of musical styles from Carriacou, that tiny island in the Grenadines, which has produced a cornucopia of heartfelt music in several Creole traditions. With roots in Africa and Europe, this music is pure Caribbean -- big drum songs, Spiritual Baptist anthems, calypos, lullabies, dance music, and more.
