The recent tragic news from Haiti reminded me of a trip I took there in 2002 with Welsh recording artist Christopher Rees. We came across some of the best drumming I've ever heard. These two short clips give a taste of the superb musicianship that could be found in that impoverished but in many ways inspiring country. The first is from a rehearsal of a dance troupe in Port au Prince - the second from a Voudou ceremony we were lucky enough to be invited to attend, at a hidden location the heart of that city (back when it was still just about standing). Unforgettable. We have mixed our recordings from those and other sessions on to a CD that we are selling to raise funds for the Haiti relief effort.
