"The Palenque of San Basilio, Colombia are a group of people who are descendants of runaway slaves. The Creole language that the Palenque speak is Spanish-based but heavily influenced by West African languages. Ocora presents a musical portrait of Palenque of San Basilio, the first settlement of emancipated blacks in the New World. On this CD, the Palenque sing songs of sisterhoods, everyday life and funeral music sung a cappella or to vibrant percussion accompaniment." Limited stock.
