  • Two reel to reel tapes. (Copied onto C86-102.) Recording of the choir at Notre Dame d'Haiti Church at a Sunday morning service. Field notes mention that the mike was 20 feet away from choir, so the recording is "under recorded." Includes Congo and calypso styles. The choir director was Michael Voltaire. 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.
