Fabre Duroseau FW06837 / FW 6837

Hailing from a highly respected musical family, Haitian pianist Fabre Duroseau delights with the pianistic flourishes of méringue-s composed by himself and his brothers. The Haitian méringue (a distinct form from the Dominican merengue) may have emerged during the days of colonial slavery and likely contributed to the evolution of jazz.
