The charming and fascinating West Indian culture of the U.S. Virgin Islands is introduced by this collection of 60 native children's circle games, clap patterns, jump rope chants and songs, elimination games and jokes.

The clearly written text represents the melodic and rhythmic transcription of the music, and includes rhythmic notation and pictures illustrating the described actions. Accompanying the written text is an authentic 35 minute original live sound field recording of the native children ages 4 through twelve.

This beautifully designed "How To" book and cassette, containing step by step instructions on how to play along with each song, chant, and game is sure to charm not only children but adults as well.

Further historical emphasis of West Indian Culture is afforded by the presentations of 81 earthy and brilliant native proverbs, written in dialect and handed down from the days of slavery on the sugarcane plantations, as well as, by the inclusion of maps, photographs, illustrations, and a 50 word Glossary of unfamiliar words and definitions translated into standard English.

DOMINO is sure to stimulate interest in the colorful, heritage, and music of the West Indies, as well as a life long appreciation for world music and the diversity of out own American Culture. CONTINUED
