Listen to Yves Daniel Lundy talk about his favorite Haitian Music“Okay, my name is Yves Daniel Lundy. I’m here to talk about the Haitian music, which is kompa—Haitian for crowd(?) music. I came here in 1966, but deep down in my heart, I’m still thinking about home. And, every time I hear my music, which is kompa, I cannot see myself sitting down. I have to get up and be on the floor and dance. Kompa is my culture. When it’s carnival time, it’s marvelous. Everyone has costume, with floats—beautiful!”

Year: 1966
