Mix for Dominica // Old Time Cadence & Reggae
Hugo Mendez

A selection of classic Cadence, Cadence-lypso and reggae from Dominica. Most of the records on this mix come from sound system and record shop owner Albert Darroux who was kind enough to teach me a lot about the music of Dominica. Albert sadly passed away several years ago, RIP.

Thanks to the Chubby and the Midnight Groovers, Jeff Joseph (RIP), Gordon Henderson and all the standard bearers for Dominican music.
