The Creole Choir of Cuba will be touring the eastern part of the United States to promote its latest release titled Santiman. It is The Creole Choir’s second album, and the follow up to Tande-la. The album contains freedom songs that have been passed down through generations of Haitian emigrants in Cuba. The choir performs songs in both Haitian Creole and Spanish.

Santiman was recorded at Real World Studios in the UK, produced by composer and arranger John Metcalfe. In addition to the group’s captivating vocal harmonies, Santiman includes Dramane Dembele (from Burkina Faso) on flute, Paul Bilson (born in Ghana, currently UK-based) on trumpet, and renowned British jazz pianist Tom Cawley.

The Creole Choir of Cuba, known as Desandann in Cuba, hails from Camagüey, Cuba’s third largest city.
