Description

Haitian vocalist and composer André Charles was a Romantic who thoroughly appreciated “Une femme qui belle” (“a beautiful woman”). Songs composed for the Port-au-Prince-based Ibo Combo, popular during the 1970s, are nostalgic tributes to “le Belle Bagaille” (“Beautiful Thing”) that nod to peyizan (peasant) folk practices.
