This collection presents the two main genres of Afro-Dutch Guyanese music—Kawina-winti and Kaseko-Opo Poku. Sung in Taki-Taki (a native Creole dialect consisting of English, Dutch, Portuguese, and African languages) this album offers a glimpse into Surinamese life and the music that accompanies it.
