Island Music Friday: Wi, Ca Vwey (Sesenne Descartes)

Before we begin, Island Scene 758 must give advance apologies for the mangled Kweyol in the title!

We are confident that if you conducted a survey which included every single St. Lucian over the age of 5 (all ~175,000 of us), it would be difficult to find anybody who did NOT know who Sesenne was. The Grande Dame of cultural music on the island, Sesenne was St. Lucia’s greatest chantwelle. Her signature vocals provided the soundtrack to our cultural celebrations year after year, until it is almost impossible to think of La Woz, La Marguerite, or Jounen Kweyol without thinking of Sesenne. A cherished national heroine, St. Lucia suffered a great loss upon Sesenne’s passing in 2010.
