One of Haiti’s musical traditions is known to outsiders simply as compas. But in the non-standardized Creole (kreyòl), Haitians identify it variously as compa, conpa, and konpa-dirék.Regardless of its various spellings, compas refers to a complex, ever-changing music genre that fuses African rhythms, European ballroom dancing, and Haitian bourgeois aesthetics. The word may have derived from the Spanish compás, which relates to the musical rhythm of the “beat” or “pulse.” One of the most distinctive features of Haitian compas music is the steady, pulsing drum beat, which makes it easy to dance to.
