“Compas, also known as Compas direct in French, or konpa dirèk in Creole or simply konpa, is a modern méringue, the national music of Haiti that people have been dancing and singing since the 1800s. Popularized by Haitian sax and guitar player Nemours Jean-Baptiste in 1955, compas is the main music of many countries such as Dominica and the French Antilles, etc.” (from Wikipedia)
