Lataye: Tou Manbre

by Dadi Beaubrun

The music on this disc is about as far from the concept of Vodou (sometimes spelled Voodoo) music as is possible – at least, the “voodoo music” we have heard played in Hollywood films. The rhythms are tempered and augmented by not only the drums, but also guitar, bass, and most notably, the voice. Some of the vocal refrains are spiritual and at times almost ethereal in sound. This disc is predominately the product of Daniel “Dadi” Beaubrun’s musical vision, and he is aided here by his sister Marjorie. The new venture is intended to expand his musical vision by infusing Vodou with rock, pop, and blues-even a bit of an Appalachian or Irish sound, as on “Sayila”. This disc is a synthesis of the positive and spiritual essence of Haitian Vodou. It is a strong new statement by this talented and visionary artist. Try it and be pleasantly surprised by the graceful beauty found in the rhythmic music.

Album Notes
Haiti world music group Lataye invite us along for a spiritual and soul-searching journey set to the tune of Haitian music. Driven by Haitian Vodou rhythms pulled together by Daniel “Dadi” Beaubrun, a world-renowned composer, producer, songwriter, and musician, Lataye offers elements of pop, jazz, soul, and blues in each of their incredibly tight songs. Marjorie Beaubrun delivered some of the most angelic vocals ever heard in Haitian roots music. Fusing these sounds together is a trademark of Dadi’s and he offers up some mystical arrangements here that will befuddle genre-phobes. Terrific!
