ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lili Dauphin's CD “Crying Mountain” can be described as Caribpop, yet her lyrics, which often tell stories from her book, have more depth than any Britney Spears tune.

The title song, "Crying Mountain," which contains the words "you're no Stranger to pain ... your sun will rise again ... your grief won't be in vain" is both bittersweet and uplifting. As you listen to the faster-paced "Tiyaya," you can picture yourself in a small thatched-roof village bar, abandoning your bottle of Prestige beer on the table as you stand up and rush to the dance floor. A few songs are sung entirely in Creole, allowing the listener to drink in the rhythms and cadences of the native tongue of Haiti.

Track #11, "America," is a sweet ode to Dauphin's new homeland and serves as a reminder of all that we have here in this wonderful country. The CD "Crying Mountain" serves as an excellent companion to the novel, and those who appreciate learning about other cultures -- as well as a catchy tune -- would be well-advised to take a listen.

Inspiration to the soul
As soon as I listen to the first note, I was transported to another dimension. This music makes you forget everything and transport you to a calming state of mind.

Lia Caprara

The book Crying Mountain + the CD = A great combination !!
The songs in Crying Mountain CD brings you to the adventures of the characters of Tiville, the little town in Haiti. The switness of Lilli's voice, the deep and meaningfull lyrics and the arrangments of the songs make this CD a wonderful choice. It makes you sing and travel around !!

This CD is so soothing and gentle to listen to. The music is really unlike anything else I have heard. Very magical and original. I think one only needs to hear it once to love it and own it so they experience the pleasure of listening to it again and again. It deserves a lot of recognition.

catchy upbeat tunes from the Caribbean
I love this CD. The music transports me to the island where I relive my wonderful memories of my island vacation. I can feel the ocean breeze and see the palm trees slightly swaying. How I wish I could be there now, eating Lili's famous rice and beans and drinking her fabulous coconut drink.

William Morris

A rare, contemporary example of Carribean music.
Wow! If you want to hear real Carribean, particular Haitian, music that's as authentic as it is rare, check out this jewel of a recording. In addition to English, the artist lasso's the listener into a little known world of creole language and Haitian rhythms, causing you to embark on a rare journey of musical discovery. The little-understood island nation finds an authentic and mature interpreter in Lili Dauphin: are we witnessing a new Haitian renaissance in the arts? If this CD is any indication, the answer may very well be yes.
