Description

Blonk bloup blogodop! This rhythmically energetic piece full of fun nonsense syllables is sure to excite choirs and audiences alike. Inspired by a style of Haitian dance music called Rara, Blogodop will make you want to move your body!
 

Translation of Haitian Creole text:

Dansing Rara is freeing
Dansing Rara is unleaching
Take advantage of this moment
It will pass and won’t come back

Whoever you may be
This Rara will make you move
The crowd’s getting their groove on
The smell of love is rising
Come, come shake your body…
