Haitian guitarist and composer Frantz Casseus charged himself with the mission of building a repertoire for guitar blending Haitian folk music and European classical music, much as Villa Lobos had done for music in Brazil. The result, while largely overlooked, is as tantalizing as flamenco and possesses an unparalleled lyrical beauty.
