More Information

Kompa (in Haitian: konpa) is a modern musical genre. Popularized by saxophonist and guitarist Jean-Baptiste Nemours in 1955 (direct compass)1. The year 1955 would be the date of the beginning of the implementation of the Compas Direct rhythm by Nemours Jean-Baptiste, a rhythm which he would have finalized in 1957. Nemours Jean-Baptiste would have presented to the general public his musical formation "Cojunto international" on the Place Sainte-Anne in Port-au-Prince, July 26, 1955 on the occasion of the feast of Sainte-Anne. Since then, July 26 is considered by some to be Compass Day, this rhythm which has since been the musical identity of Haitian culture.
