So far we’ve hit 6 countries’ carnavals in 3 days! Now it’s time to really get our money’s worth as we venture out to those string of islands just north of Trinidad & Tobago, commonly known today as the Lesser Antilles, specifically Guadeloupe, Dominica, and Martinique. Now this is usually the point where we would go on about origins or context regarding this Les Chanteurs des Isles du Vent record, but it’s carnaval—no time for getting nerdy. Trust me, if this song Edamise Oh! doesn’t give you the rush of carnaval running through your veins then I’m going to assume you are a card carrying tea party member, (fact: tea baggers hate carnaval).
What’s that? You need more? I don’t blame you. Here are 2 more carnaval songs of a melody, Haussé / Bo Fe-A that will have you never wanting to leave Isles du Vent.
