Franz Casseus
(1915-1993)

Haitian guitarist/composer Frantz Casseus deserves more recognition than he has received for creating solo classical guitar pieces from indigenous Haitian folk music. His professional life was colorful if not extremely glamorous. Born in Port au Prince, Haiti, he fashioned his first guitar from a box, strings, and old bicycle parts at age 12. By the time he moved to New York in 1946, he had already begun writing his own classical guitar compositions, which blended the melodies and rhythms of Haitian voodoo music with 19th-century classical guitar harmonies and techniques. Casseus recorded two albums for Folkways Records in 1953 and 1954 and penned the hit song "Merci Bon Dieu," which was recorded by Harry Belafonte and Hugh Masekela. Casseus died in Manhattan of heart failure in 1993 at age 77.
Primarily, Casseus earned his living as a guitar teacher.
