OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Orchestre Tropicana D’Haiti – 24 Decembre (1988)


It’s that time of year again! Despite Covid 19 taking over everything including the holidays, some of us are still showing a lil Christmas spirit. We’ve always made space for some Christmas songs on the blog, and this year’s no different. On Oldies Sunday Christmas Edition, we head on over to Haiti to kick things off with the Orchestre Tropicana D’Haiti with the track, “24 Decembre“!

Released in 1988 through Louis Records, Orchestre Tropicana D’Haiti brought together beautiful instrumentation and vocals that celebrated the Christmas season and promoted unity and family throughout. “24 Decembre” or “December 24” is recognized as Christmas Eve, and Caribbean folks celebrate it through parties and a “Grand Market” where shoppers get their last minute gifts, or take in various events throughout. Though performed in Haitian Creole style of Compas, the music can still be felt by anyone who is around who hears it. “24 Decembre” is featured on the band’s 1988 album, “25ème Printemps (25th Spring)“. With over 40 years in, Orchestre Tropicana D’Haiti is still performing and entertaining many with their selections.
