The Tale of Joeboom
The Tale of Joeboom : Joeboom! Surdo, or as he was affectionately called by his Franciscan crockery delivery boy days, ‘Joey’ was born in Port-au Prince, Haiti, where he was raised by the Tainampoocan parents, Louis and Lekewique. 슬롯커뮤니티
Perhaps the most devious and notorious of the Tainampoocans, Joeboom, like Paulrano and Seta Di Palermo before him, was a street kid, born in Port-au Prince with no official papers in his passport.
Nevertheless, Joeboom drew attention to himself with his rather unique name – which we must also mention here that it was typical of the horrible conditions for most children in Haiti, as adults would routinely shorten the name of a child irritatingly to draw attention to themselves.
With his newspaper in hand, Pilate asked the general to tell everyone about his new ‘friendship’ with Joeboom. The general indeed claimed to have had a falling out with Joeboom’s people, and although Joeboom showed him great respect, Pilate was persistent in his request.
Pilate eventually moved to Louis Frontenac Port, where Joeboom showed him more favoritism, mentioning in passing that Pilate had a brother.
The story about how this extraordinary being figured out how to communicate with Pilate and his ‘brother’ started from Louis Frontenac. Frontenac likely knew of Joeboom, and he may also have recognized the ‘famous’ Falls of Port Royal shape-shifting since the destruction of the ancient city.
What Frontenac stated may very well have been false in some details, but the core of the story was consistent – however, the whole story about the founding of Port Royal, and the appearance of the rock, had been changed. The appearance of the rock had been altered.
According to the story, the rock had been brought to Europe by Louis Frontenac, and was brought to Bahama in his homeland in 1820. From Bahama it made its way to the Port-au Prince in 1821 and 1822. Captain Bouquet had become fascinated by the rock and brought some of his musicians with him. Amongst his band of musicians were Ben-Hur, Tom, and Chopper. They had learned to play the trombone and violin by listening to music from Egypt. They also played Arabinissa, a sweet of Arabic origin. The leader of this orchestra was Enrico Caruso.
This was the music that the band heard that led them to describe it as music from God. What most musicians at the time thought was noise. The rock began to be played in 1823 and was called “The Language of the Detectives” because most of the men in Port-au Prince that time hadn’t understood what they had heard.
The government of Haiti began to fear that the music of this people was also noise. Awa Hoeun lived in Port-au Prince at the time. He received a message from none other than Louis Frontenac to come to the capital. The rock was brought to Port-au Prince in 1824.
The rock had an immense importance in the history of Haiti. Port-au Prince maintained diplomatic relations with Europe. Europe, aware of Haiti’s importance on the music scene thought it was an excellent opportunity to market their artists. Many of these artists, in fact, performed outside as well as inside the United States. Certainly both the rock and the tradition have played strong roles in the history of Port-au Prince.
The United States government subsidized the rock and traditional music during the colonial period. clients of the slum bands would request the services of these musicians. The bands spent most of their time on the street performing for the public. The location was chosen because it was close to Port-au Prince. The Tale of Joeboom
The bands are popularly referred to as “haitais” or “sangs”. One reason for this name is that slum-rock was the most popular music in Port-au Prince during the 1970s. Records were kept by the slum band so that they could play at any minute in public and private events.
The bands differ in mainly musical styles. They play reggae, rhythms and Caribbean beats. Some of the bands also play hip-hop and rock.
One band formed by a group of concert clefs Isangba Criollo, Daniel Gonzalez, and Paul Ritter passed through time when they arrived in Port-au Prince in 1972. Their set included the Port-au-Prince song “On OurHolocausts”, and the tribute to the Haitian flag “Le Passageway”.
