LA MARTINIQUE, SECONDE PATRIE DU KONPA …

By Miguel Octave, Fabrice Paimba

With Miguel Octave, Director

In the early sixties, a musical trend born in the Haitian dance halls swept the French West Indies: Compas Direct or Konpa in Creole. It made an indelible mark on the artistic life of the region. This musical documentary goes in search of those involved in this crazy saga : artists, musicologists, politicians and ordinary people who look back on this time with fondness.  In Paris, New York, Miami, Montreal, Haiti and of course Martinique, they tell us, with nostalgia, passion, emotion and humour, about the way in which this amazing, yet little publicized phenomenon, has been bringing together thousands of fans for more than 50 years, around concerts, dance halls and legendary albums
