(Aug 17, 2014): Magnum Band – Libète (Liberty)

From the 1989 album, Konbit: Burning Rhythms of Haiti.  This was a compilation effort by Jonathan Demme that paralleled David Byrne’s 1989 mix of Brazilian classics Beleza Tropical.  Along with WOMAD and Peter Gabriel, some fine modern pioneering efforts to get the word out about world music.  While Magnum Band has a lengthy discography stretching from 1980 through the late 1990s, it appears that this tune was alone put down on this collection.
