This type of song is called a "conversation duet" that's usually sung between a man and a woman.

*I asked at Kwéyòl Sent Lisi about the terms "stèpin wòz" and "kwèkolé" and here's what they responded:

"I have been trying to verify for the longest while now but no success as yet. 'Stèpin wòz' is some kind of pink female under wear I believe. 'Kwèkolé'/'kwenm kolé' is probably some porridge. But I am not sure. Folk songs are usually a problem to understand sometimes."

Monique wrote from France, "'Kwèkolé' could be some custard = crème collée."

If anyone has more info about the meaning of these terms, please email me. Thanks! -Mama Lisa

Many thanks to Kwéyòl Sent Lisi (a site about Saint Lucian Creole) for help with some terms in this song!
