From the time that Alan Lomax left his position as head of the Archive of American Folk Song at the Library of Congress in 1942 through the end of his long career, he amassed one of the most important collections of ethnographic material in the world. It includes more than 5,000 hours of sound recordings, 400,000 feet of motion picture film, hundreds of photographic prints and negatives, over 120 linear feet of correspondence, field notes, research files, and much more.
While recording for the Library of Congress in the 1930s, Lomax made trips to Haiti and the Bahamas. The recordings made in Haiti in 193637 provide a window on Haitian expressive culture recorded soon after the departure of the American Marines, while Haiti was in the throes of a nationalist and africentric movement. This groundbreaking production of the story, the sounds, and the sights of the legendary musicologists trip to Haiti features 10 CDs, two books containing extensive notes and Lomaxs journal, a replication of the map he used (with added notations), color video footage, and hours of amazing, never-before-heard music that no longer exists on earth!
