For the first time on CD.

Katherine Dunham revolutionized American dance in the 1930's by going to the roots of black dance and ritual and transforming them into significant artistic choreography that speaks to all. She is a pioneer in the use of folk and ethnic choreography; she is one of the founders of the anthropological dance movement. She showed the world that African American heritage is beautiful.
In 1957, she recorded this album of sacred rhythms from Haiti, Cuba and Brazil with the best percussionists in each domain. The very documented booklet explains the origin and the instrumentation of each song.
