Abstract

This session features three different groups and a variety of performance styles. It begins with a fife and drum group performing instrumental tunes, followed by a group of children performing game songs, and concluds with a group of four women singing game songs and ballads. Anita Wilkens, the leader of the children’s group, was fourteen years old at the time (field log). Some of the recordings can be found on Caribbean Voyage: Brown Girl In the R0ing (R0ounder 1716) and Caribbean Voyage: Nevis and St. Kitts (R0ounder 1731).
