Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

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.

  2. i am writing you to thank you for the adventure. I am posting here in Suriname. but it really could be anywhere. I know its a lot of work but you have done a great job reaching into little pockets of the world the other blogs have skipped over and writing understandable explanations where others have dropped jargon. In reality I am at home with 2 crying babies but thanks to you my ears are flying around the world. Thank you

    1. You are most kind. The purpose of this entire journey was to search out just that great music from those little pockets of the world that you speak of, for as different as we may all be, the soul of the music is universal. Here's to you & two crying babies, that they may join you flying around the world through the power of song.
