Well, Teacher…my computer ate my homework.
I had finished an entire write-up on the musick of Suriname over the weekend. When I went to post it up today, it was nowhere to be found. I used three of the top recovery programs to search deleted & lost files, to no avail. I just don’t have more time.
I had explained about the origins of kaseko music from slavery days in Suriname, about fast dancing, about Bigi Pokoe & Skratjie Pokoe (big drum music & Surinam tropical music). I had bios for most of the main artists on these four volumes.
Here’s what I have readily available.
Various – Songs from Surinam Vol 1, Dureco 11-061992, 1996.
