Culture and customs of Haiti

Culture and Customs of Haiti begins with an overview of the mountainous island that seemed forbidding to European colonizers. Finally, chapters on the performing arts and visual arts evoke the energy and color of the people in such forms as vaudou jazz and dance, contemporary rara rock, and the folkloric influence on Haitian painting.
