Fight is this week's danceaday.com collaboration, continuing Boris's series of dances for Black History Month. Today's piece samples from bassist/composer Charles Mingus's Haitian Fight Song. If you are unfamiliar with his work, I'd recommend that you start with these albums:
— Blues and Roots
— Mingus Ah Um
His autobiography, Beneath the Underdog is also well worth a look.
