Thread Name: Origins: Brown Skin Girl- folksong from Grenada
Subject: RE: Origins: Brown Skin Girl- folksong from Grenada
So the question becomes how to actually track down this Grenadian song? There is a book on the Big Drum Festival on Carriacou and Alan Lomax collected a series of Grenadian songs from people in 1942. However, most of the tracks on the Lomax album are in French Creole. Does anyone have an idea? I'm not aware of any Grenadian folk songbooks.

No specific discussion of Grenadian/Grenadiane songs in the book "Carnival Culture in Action."
