Direct kompa, (called Konpa in Haitian Creole), is a musical genre originating in Haiti. Invented by the Haitian saxophonist and guitarist Nemours Jean-Baptiste in 1957, while his Cunjunto International, which became Ensemble Aux Callebasses, was born in 1955. The Compas Direct derives from the Haitian meringue family and is close to the quadrille, itself derived from the French contredanse.
