DMR’s Kompa Variations

At the start of the 2008 premiere of his “Kompa Variations” in Providence, RI, composer Daniel Bernard Roumain (a.k.a. DBR), told the audience that he wanted his piece to sound like Haiti and Iceland. The performance was anything but the disaster recent memories of those three places evoke.

On this week’s Deep Threes, we’ll hear DBR fuse electronic and hip-hop influences in a track from his new album, “Woodbox Beats & Balladry”.
