Soufrière

Named for the village home of a beautiful active sulfur spring and volcano in St. Lucia, Soufrière (pronounced soo- free-ay) is a haunting tune that combines a Folk aesthetic with Jazz harmonies and the Zouk rhythm of Guadeloupe. The strumming pattern for this music of the French Antilles is less daunting than intensely syncopated Soca and Calypso from Trinidad and is an excellent middle ground for bands transitioning to more challenging rhythmic patterns and grooves. Written in AABA song form (with intro), this piece can be performed with or without an optional solo section. The relatively simple melodic structure of the tune is balanced by more complex harmonies thoughtfully gleaned from the Jazz idiom.
