'But whatever the reason, Butler has gained the reputation of a prickly and rather difficult customer. His understandable desire to avoid what he calls “the hoops” of the music industry - “all the things that have nothing to do with playing your instrument or playing together that take up a lot more energy than actually playing music and connecting with people”- has occasionally shown a tendency to look more like unappealing petulance.

She talks passionately about dancing in Haiti: “When Win and I were staying in this place that had windows but no real doors and some drummers started playing, and more drummers came and more drummers came, and they were playing these roots, voodoo rhythms, and we just danced til 5am, and when we were too hot, we just ran and jumped in the ocean.”
