Vibrant dancing, spectacular melodies, and undiscovered music of the Caribbean – The Creole Choir of Cuba have preserved musical treasures from Haiti, Dominica and Cuba. Referred to as "Desandann" domestically, this vocal and percussion group is composed from the descendants of several waves of Haitian migrants who escaped slavery at the end of the 18th Century or more recently came as labourers to work Cuba's sugar plantations. The Creole Choir describe each of their songs as being 'like a small film' filled with vitality, humour and compassion.
