Félix Blume ~ Death in Haiti: Funeral Brass Bands and Sounds from Port au Prince

Death in Haiti is in turns painful and exultant, drenched in loss and life-affirming.  The cries of a woman who has lost her mother are nearly unbearable; the brass bands are triumphant to the point of being transcendent.  This is the

Carlos Casas ~ Pyramid of Skulls
