Dominican Republic and Saint Eustatius 1967

In 1967, while on vacation in the Dominican Republic and Saint Eustatius, Alan Lomax, assisted by Joan Halifax, made an hour and a quarter of recordings of work songs, carols, sea shanties, whaling songs, calypso, ballads, and an excerpt from a roving theater group doing a play about David and Goliath to a musical background of drumming. Documentation on these recordings is scanty.
