Tabou Combo got started in 1968 in Petion-Ville, Haiti.
Singing in English, Spanish, French or their native Creole, Tabou serves a hot mix of grooves and textures with roots from around the world. He provides a strong dose of the Dominican Republic's national dance music, meringue. In addition, there is Haiti's dance-till-you-drop carnival music, rara, and the hypnotic drums of Haitian voodoo rituals. Add to that quadrilles and contra-dances from Haiti's French colonizers and funk from the American soul era to James Brown for good measure. Read more on Last.fm
