AllMusic Review by

Sophisticated and soupy, the Haitian songs on André Charles and His Quisqueya Ibo Combo Group reflect both West African infused voodoo music and the romantically grounded sounds of Spanish derived folk songs. On this Folkways release an amalgamation of songs dedicated to women, food, and non-Christian deities are gathered together for your ears. Nice guitar work, tasty percussion, and Creole call and response passages are among the characteristics of these 12 songs.
