Date

Description
One reel to reel tape (also copied onto audio cassette: C86-101). Interview with Po Lambi player (Haitian shell playing). The skill was used in rural Haitian villages to signal social gatherings, as work songs, and during harvesting. It is usually played with drums, and is of African origins. For Haitians, it is a symbol of their culture. He discusses learning po lambi; uses of it; life in rural Haiti; moving to the US (c. 1975); getting degree in Social Sciences; his family's reaction to his learning po lambi; history of the tradition; and teaching Haitian folklife to others. For images of Joseph, see S 1577, v. 41, S86-4721 - S86-4727. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
