Creole Music Of The French West Indies

A Discography 1900-1959

The history of black musical traditions in the Caribbean is rich in variety and follows a long and distinguished path paralleling the development of similar vernacular genres in North and South America. By the late 1800s, the biguine, with its origin in the slavery period, became the epitome of black French Antillean Creole music. It was highly popular in Saint-Pierre, Martinique, before the town’s decimation by the volcanic eruption of Mont Pelée in 1902.

This most cosmopolitan and vibrant settlement was the heart of French Creole culture in the region and included a Carnival that equalled the Shrovetide festivals of Port-of-Spain, Trinidad (in the south) and New Orleans (in the north). The music of Saint-Pierre lived on despite the catastrophe, and from 1929 became a feature of pre-Second World War Paris nightclubs and recording studios. The biguine was not exclusive to Martinique, and was performed also in the French territories of Guyane and Guadeloupe. [ Illustrated with record labels, catalogues, photographs, advertisements, maps, and other relevant images, this pioneering discography lists recordings by linguists, anthropologists and folklorists (commencing in 1900) alongside commercial endeavours of biguine orchestras, from the first sides cut by Stellio in 1929 to 1959 – dawn of the changing 1960s.

While the recording cycle begins somewhat later, the discography enables empirical comparison with parallel black Creole jazz recordings from New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.A., and records representing the string band and calypso traditions of Trinidad. Printed in both French and English, a notable feature is the contextual essay by John Cowley – ‘Mascarade, biguine and the bal nègre’ – which traces the roots of the music from its French Antillean inception, via the Carnivals of Saint-Pierre, to the opening of the Parisian bal nègre in the rue Blomet in 1924 and the burgeoning popularity of the genre fuelled by the Exposition Coloniale de Paris in 1931.

L’histoire de la musique noire des Antilles révèle une grande diversité de traditions, et un parcours spécifique comparable au développement de genres vernaculaires similaires en Amérique du Nord et du Sud. À la fin du XVIIIe siècle la biguine, dont l’origine remonte à la période de l’esclavage, était devenue l’archétype de la musique noire des Antilles française. Elle était très populaire à Saint-Pierre, en Martinique, avant que la ville ne soit décimée par l’éruption de la montagne Pelée en 1902. Cette localité cosmopolite et extrêmement dynamique représentait alors le cœur de la culture franco-créole dans toute la région, et son carnaval était l’équivalent des fêtes du Mardi gras de Port-of Spain, de Trinidad au sud et de la Nouvelle-Orléans au nord.

La musique de Saint-Pierre a survécu à la catastrophe, et s’est imposée à Paris à partir de 1929 dans les night-clubs et les studios d’enregistrement de l’avant-guerre. La biguine n’était pas spécifique à la Martinique, mais également représentée dans les autres régions francophones, Guyane et Guadeloupe. [ Illustrée par de nombreuses étiquettes de disques, catalogues, photographies, cartes et autres documents iconographiques, cette discographie originale répertorie les enregistrements réalisés par des linguistes, anthropologues et folkloristes à partir de 1900, ainsi que les premiers enregistrements commerciaux des orchestres de biguine, depuis les faces gravées par Stellio en 1929 jusqu’en 1959 – année qui amorce le changement des années soixante.

Bien que le processus soit intervenu légèrement plus tard, cette discographie permet d’établir un parallèle empirique avec les enregistrements de la Nouvelle-Orléans aux Etats-Unis, et les disques illustrant la tradition des orchestres à cordes et du calypso à Trinidad. Présentée en deux versions, anglaise et française, l’étude de John Cowley «La mascarade, la Biguine et le Bal nègre» représente un élément majeur de cet ouvrage, retraçant les racines de cette musique depuis ses origines franco-antillaises en passant par le carnaval de Saint-Pierre, jusqu’à l’ouverture du Bal Nègre de la rue Blomet en 1924 et à la popularité grandissante du style, impulsée à Paris par l’Exposition coloniale de 1931.
