Randal Corsen & Friends -
Dulsura di Korsou
With this project and cd
‘Dulsura di Korsou’ Randal goes back to
his roots, performing folklore songs from his
beloved island. The songs cover more than
a century of musical history and tradition
from Curaçao and pay tribute to some of
the great composers of the island.
For this project Randal invited a group of
musical friends. Most of them were born
on Curaçao. Together they perform a
repertoire that showcase all the typical
Antillean music styles such as the tumba,
the danza, the Antillean waltz, the muzik
di zumbi and the seú.
instruments are used, like the wiri (metal
guiro), chapi (hoe), tambu grandi and
bari (drum instruments), kachu (cow horn),
kwarta (four-string folklore guitar), but also
drums, electric guitar and bass, giving the
music a more modern sound.
Some of the
songs are instrumental, most are sung in the
native Papiamentu language.
