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. Dominica -- Creole Crossroads: These recordings connect back to the oldest and deepest layers of African-American music, capturing the once flourishing work song tradition, and look forward to later developments in Eastern Caribbean popular music, in which tiny Dominica has played a pivotal role. Music in this collection has influenced both soca and zouk, styles that have entered the world music mainstream.
