About the recording of this album:
The name "Son De Soley" means "Sound of the Sun" in Creole. This name umbrellas several groups, explained in detail below.
This album was recorded over the past year in Cap Haitien, Haiti. Tracks 1-6 are sung by one group of +-15 girls who call themselves "The Divine Princesses". Track 7 is a church choir practice from the area of Rouge Plate , 8-12 are sung by a choir of 5 girls from the EBAC orphanage. Tracks 13 & 14 are from a blind accordion player named Jack. The outro is a grade school class in Jacquesyl, where the most lovely teacher "Utilde" invited us in for a song.
