Randal Corsen & Friends – Dulsura di Korsou

With this project and cd ‘Dulsura di Korsou’ Randal goes back to his roots, performing folklore songs from his beloved island. The songs cover more than a century of musical history and tradition from Curaçao and pay tribute to some of the great composers of the island.



For this project Randal invited a group of musical friends. Most of them were born on Curaçao. Together they perform a repertoire that showcase all the typical Antillean music styles such as the tumba, the danza, the Antillean waltz, the muzik di zumbi and the seú.

Many traditional instruments are used, like the wiri (metal guiro), chapi (hoe), tambu grandi and bari (drum instruments), kachu (cow horn), kwarta (four-string folklore guitar), but also drums, electric guitar and bass, giving the music a more modern sound.
Some of the songs are instrumental, most are sung in the native Papiamentu language.
