Ced Ride Tells A Story


Ced Ride Tells A Story

On this the first Sunday of the year Skempi News delivers a blast from the past courtesy of Ced Ride’s classic performance of the immortal Pierre Lauffer poem “Balada Di Buchi Fil”. The lament and passion in Ced Ride’s voice as he tells the unfortunate story of the slave Buchi Fil while hitting every note with force and dedication is sure to draw you in.

This rendition of “Balada Di Buchi Fil” was also included in Skempi and Maduro & Curiel Bank’s 2016 list of 100 most influential Dutch Caribbean songs of the past 100 years. So if you didn’t go to Fuikdag or are just getting back from there…

Listen to it here!

Gerson Eleonora (1987) has a passion for writing, whether it be short stories, poems or the biographies, reviews and music articles displayed here on the site. He is an aficionado of everything Caribbean, it’s almost as if salt water runs through his veins.
