Chart positions

This show was 20th in the global experimental chart.

The Carribean Situationist is an exploration of vernacular musics and poetry from Haiti, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbados, taking advantage of two invaluable online resources: Jamaica Musical Passage, with rare examples of 17th century folk music, and Radio Haiti Archives, collecting exceptional shows from the 1970s and 80s. The Carribean Situationist is a personal interpretation of the archipelago's sound world, an aural travelogue encompassing traditional and modern music styles, spoken word, rhythm loops and electronic processing. The title comes from a 1973 anarchist LP named "None Shall Escape ñ Caribbean Situationist versus Trevor Menroe", compiling conversations and informations on Carribean workers' struggles ca. 1966-73.
