Les Loups Noirs – a Télé Haïti,
Écho Mondial, Shango Records 1977

Les Loups Noirs, front

Haitian compas has a groove different from other caribbean
countries. Part from it’s French lyrics maybe there is a tiny
bit of similar flavour in the music from our Dutch Antilles.
The more I listen to compas, the more I like it, the rhythms
keep going untill you reach a certain trance, great atmosphere.
I’m sorry track # 4 & 8 have some pops halfway but overall this
lp sounds fairly good. We had two records by Les loups Noirs,
find them here and here . I guess the
reason I had problems listening to compas is shown
in track number seven, the other seven tracks are great.


1 Echo mondial
2 Dimanche
3 La martiniquaise
4 Donné donnant
5 Nostalgie
6 Haïti mon pays
7 Amada amante
8 Ti zoizo
