The group's critically hailed 1991 international debut mingles revolutionary spirit with the deep tristesse created by Haiti's centuries of loss. Underscoring the lyrics' dense emotional weave is the vibrant mix of traditional African and Caribbean folk forms with modern pop's six-string excitement. The point of equilibrium for Boukman's many-colored musical tapestry is voodoo drumming and the vision those African rhythms evoke of true human community. The set opens with the proud and lovely ''S

Caribean Voyage - Brown Girl In The Ring - Cd This collection of children's song-games from the Caribbean marks a high point in the annals of field recordings. Alan Lomax, who has traveled from work fields to prisons to front porches in order to best capture the spirit of folk music, caught these songs in fine fashion, even with the limitations of his audio equipment. The title track, recorded twice at different tempos, is robust and widely familiar to kids as both a game and a song on Smilin' I

The Best Of The Caribbean: 25 G The cover photo boasts a steel band in full regalia, but don't be misled. This bright collection showcases an unnamed pop group having a ball mainly with Jamaican reggae classics, though strangely enough there's a vague Polynesian flavor to some of the arrangements. No matter. The real strengths here are vocals that do justice to Bob Marley's ''No Woman, No Cry'' and ''I Shot the Sheriff,'' Jimmy Cliff's ''You Can Get It If You Really Want,'' Desmond Dekker's ska

In Haiti, the most ''African'' country in the Caribbean, the drums are the guardians of voodoo, while the rhythms and songs of the local troubadours keep the Black heritage alive. Ti-Coca and his musicians take us to the roots of the Merengue with their irresistible charm. This CD also includes live recordings of the legendary Toto Bissainthe.

Here on Rasin Kreyol (which translates as ''Creole Roots''), reigning queen of Haitian song Emeline Michel covers a lot of ground, writing songs that draw upon Haitan compas, twoubadou and rara as well as jazz, rock, pop, bossa nova and samba. Whichever direction the singer goes, her voice is clear and forceful as she dramatically imparts her political lyrics in Haitian Creole and French, offering up messages about AIDS, social justice and peace. She does this skill and class: Michel repeats the
