15 hours of recorded sounds are condensed into a vivid sound portrait depicting the way funerals and burials are lived in Haiti. Recorded in Port au Prince by sound artist Félix Blume in early December 2016, this plunges the listener into a world of pain, loss and solemn celebration as each funeral comprises its own live jazz band as well as a plethora of characters like the joker (le blaguer) who cracks jokes and tales about the recently deceased.
