Wi Egi Prisiri (70's winning march based on traditional music)

Saturday, October 27, 2007


This is one of the oldest forms of Traditional Suriname Music, next to the music of the original habitants of the South American continent "the indians".
It's called "KAWINA", these songs where song by the slaves. Characteristic for this is the form in which the singing is done, a lead singing and the guest/public repeating him.
No electronic instruments are used, the main instruments are, the Kawina drum, the so called "Apintie" drum and a wooden bench.

The group performing in this song is one of the best " Bose Krioro". There are lots of local "Kawina" bands in Suriname, many bands are also a brought, every where Suriname people are these bands are. There are no real Suriname parties without this music.

The beautiful thing of this is that all cultures in Suriname dance to these songs, although it's an Afro American style. But this is normal back in Suriname, all cultures have blended, but holding on to the most characteristics elements of there own culture.
A real Suriname culture is developing 150 years after "traditional" slavery was abolished.
