    Grog Moin - Different Versions

    I heard the version of Grog Moin by Orchestre Raymond Cicault for the first time last week. I believe that the first time I heard the song was by the Cuba Ayiti project called Haitiando. Africando also did a version with Tabou's Roger "Shoubou" Eugène on vocals. Of course, the original was by compas direk creator Nemours Jean-Baptiste.

    “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.” Frederick Douglass

    I see from the video credits that this Cha Cha Cha song was recorded in 1965.
    Assuming that the Raymond Cicault Orchestra are Haitian and not Cuban I think they did a very good job executing the cha cha cha style.

    Coincidentally quite a few calypsos of that ear also included elements of the Cha cha cha style.

    Of course they would. Cha Cha cha developed from Danzon-->contradanza. The intertwining of Haitian and Cuban music is almost as bad as the intertwining of Haitian and Dominican music

    Ti sourit, ti sourit se nan pèlen ou rete
    Rat ki rat se nan pèlen ou rete
    Tèt zozo men pa ou, zozo kale men pa ou
    M ap konyen fanm nan jis solèy leve
    Bwa m kale tou wouj
    Kon piman , kon piman, Langyèt madivinèz
    Ou pa bezwen chandèl pou ou klere l
