Records from Surinam

This weekend I’m going to play old Surinam vinyl records at the Latin Dance Night. This is a major event of Latin music in the Netherlands. Mainly I will play songs from the late 60′s till the early 80′s, all from vinyl. In this time my dad moved from Surinam to the Netherlands, right before the independance of the former Dutch colony. This videoclips shows the market in Paramaribo – Surinam’s capital – in 1976. It’s a scene from the move ‘Wan Pipel’ (One people). The song is called ‘Okrosoppoe’ (okra soup) from legendary singer ‘Lieve Hugo’.
