Released in 2013, Santiman, the choir's follow-up album, produced by John Metcalfe and recorded at Real World Studios in England, strikes the same emotional territory but adds in additional instruments, including trumpet, piano, and flute (as well as wind and bird sounds), that fill out the arrangements more, making the album sound a bit more Cuban in style, but.

The choir stresses its Haitian roots, but also the subtlety and sophistication of their singing. The producer is John Metcalf, who has worked with Blur and John Cale and provided most of the arrangements for Peter Gabriel’s Scratch My Back. He was clearly eager to show that these singers are as remarkable for their thoughtful, painful laments as much as the party songs. The album starts with a series of songs written by the choir’s leader Emilia Díaz Chávez, based on the writings of a Haitian politician. From then on the album constantly changes direction, from the swinging, Cuban-influenced Camina Como Chencha to the cheerful but stately Haitian history lesson Panama Mwen Tonbe.

The Choir hails from Cuba's third city, Camagüey, an old colonial town which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008 for its iconic architecture, where the singers have studied music to university level and are members of the Provincial Choir, which their leader Emilia Chavez directs. Desandann (the original Cuban name of The Creole Choir of Cuba) emerged out of this choir in 1994, a difficult time for Cubans when the economy fell into a black hole following the end of the USSR and of Soviet support for the revolution.

Creole Choir of Cuba - Tande (music video). The Creole Choir of Cuba - Santiman (Album Promo). The Creole Choir describe each of their songs as being 'like a small film' filled with vitality, humour and compassion. They tell stories of survival despite abject poverty, of heroes who defied colonial masters, of ghosts at the crossroads, of enduring love, of homesickness for family, of abandonment but never loss of hope, mother's laments and prayers, of the desire for freedom. With irresistible melodies driven by richly textured harmonies, shifting Caribbean rhythms with a very original root bass sound, this is impassioned singing by a unique group
