Haven't read this, but I remember the title from my ethnomusicology days: Gage Averill, "A Day for the Hunter, a Day for the Prey: POPULAR MUSIC AND POWER IN HAITI" University of Chicago Press, 1997.

Dang! well, there's at least one for like 8 bucks on Amazon
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 7:49pm hyde:

@Gary oh, that's good. the academic books that i can't find there generally are like 40-50 bucks used. gobble that up!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 7:52pm hyde:

Gage Averill also wrote a social history of American barbershop harmony, so i think the guy is legit
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 7:52pm tim abdellah:

These drums are WILD!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 7:53pm geezerette:

Of course there's nothing surprising about the similarities between this music and the NOLA Mardi Gras.and other Carnivals.

Our current Pres. has no idea what he's missing. What a crabbed little life. ( No offense to crabs.)
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 7:54pm tim abdellah:

I saw Gage Averill give a paper on barbershop once - super interesting!

@ifny - agreed!
@Gary - it's not too late ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 8:03pm ifny:

Anyone visiting NOLA on a Sunday afternoon in fine weather, make sure you stop by Congo Square. There's a drum circle not to be missed. When I was there, the drumming was prefaced by a Santerìa ceremony, and a tribute to Buddy Bolden by a banjo player (who also read us a story).
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 8:04pm geezerette:

IFNY, WOW, jackpot!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 8:05pm hyde:

@Gary pssst if there's any recent ethnomusicological academic article stuff you want to get a hold of, i know a guy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 8:07pm ifny:

@geezerette Blew my mind as I had just arrived fresh Buddy Bolden's graveside, which had taken some hours (and two friends) to locate. (It's easier to find now since his previously unmarked pauper's grave has been replaced with a large tombstone near the entrance to that particular cemetery (still a challenge as it is a cemetery among many). I recommend that as well. Bring a little whisky for Buddy.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 8:09pm geezerette:

Have followed Santeria sounds in Central Park to an extraordinary group of dancers and drummers. We joined them in the dance. Nothing but love and smiles.

I would indeed! Doesn't it drive you nuts that he left no recordings?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 8:10pm ifny:

As my mother likes to say, it's a short drive :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 8:11pm ifny:

He left recordings, we just lost them. We silly mortals.
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 8:14pm geezerette:

I thought he refused to record in case of imitators! I'd rather think you're right and records might still show up. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 8:15pm Gary:

Hmmm ... lemme put together a shortlist, Hyde!

Saw a voodoo exhibit at Museum of Natural History in NY almost 20 years ago that was fantastic. Flags, and those altars! It wasn't extensive but what was there was great.

@geezerette A few other musicians attested to having made recordings with him. Anyway, even if we don't have recordings, it's fun to use the imagination to make the sounds of Funky Butt :)

Gotta love any songs that opens "Mon existance ..."
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 8:26pm still b/p:

Missed early portion because was chopping the mad dangerous ice sheets out front...trying to do it one handed (bum shoulder) with a gravel shovel alternating with a tool made of a heavy clunky spike taped and lashed to a long thin pvc pole. Cro-magnon and petro-chemical technologies teamed to shatter the foe!
Now warm music!

It's a ritualized form of combat. Total destruction and victory isn't the purpose. Ice will have its satisfactions to boast of later around the fire. No, wait....
