Si yon jou mwen ta pati byen lwen
Fòk nou sonje pwoblèm lavi ki mande sa
Ayiti, ou se peyi an mwen
Pa g'on rezon k'ap fèm pati pou'm pa tounen
Jodi-a m'al travay, m'al travay pou 200 dola
Madanm pou m okipe, telefòn pou mwen peye

Santi kè m kap dechire, zantray mwen kap rache
M'sonje'w, m'sonje'w, Ayiti cheri mwen

[Chorus]
Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

Mwen sonje peyi mwen (Sonje!)
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen (Ayiti cheri!)
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

(Solèy lavil se ou papa)

[Hook]
Kòman nou ye?
Eske nou la?
Sak pase?
Eske n'anfom?

San kap koule nan venn mwen
Chalè solèy ou banm lavi cheri
Ayiti, tan pou m kite'w, m'pito mouri cheri
Pap sa kenbe, m'bezwen tounen
Zantray mwen kap rache
Sonje, sonje Ayiti cheri mwen

[Chorus]
Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

Valè pale yo pale
Valè ranse yo ranse
Yo pap kraze Ayiti (Pa gen sa pyès)

Valè pale yo pale
Valè ranse yo ranse
Valè pale yo pale
Yo pap kraze Ayiti
(Ayiti se peyi m, se pa ou anyen...Jezi, Marie, Jozèf)

Se la m kite manmanm, adye
Se la m kite papa m, zanmi m, fanmi m
Ayiti, mwen pap sa kite ou
Chak fwa m sonje'w, se dlo kape koule manmi
M'sonje'w m'sonje'w, Ayiti cheri

Jodi a m'al travay, m'al travay pou 200 dola
Madanm pou m okipe, telefòn pou mwen peye
Santi kè m ap dechire, zantray mwen ap rache
M'sonje'w, m'sonje'w, Ayiti cheri mwen

Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi m Ayiti
M'pap sa kenbe...Anmwey!

Songwriter's Corner: Roody Laforest

"Cheri, mwen konnen m pa ase." That's what Roody Laforest sings on his debut single, Mwen Pa Ase. It takes an honest man to admit his shortcomings. But after chatting with the Montreal-based singer, we realized though Roody tells it like it is, he can be a little too hard on himself. Wikimizik talked to him about his musical roots and writing process. We hope you enjoy his straight talk as much as we did. Who is Roody? How am I supposed to answer this question? Let's make it short...

Kompasoul Impresses On 'No Rules'

No Rules is the debut album of Kompasoul, a new band from Montreal, Canada. The 13 tracks flow seamlessly and leave you dancing throughout the duration of the project. What's most impressive about Kompasoul is their versatility. While the band is able to churn out hard-hitting club bangers promoters will love (Pè severans, Pirana, Manje Pou 2), they also craft mellow konpa love and zouk hits DJs will spin. And the transition between the two sounds is effortless. Even...

Rapping our History From Dessalines to Martelly

Tomorrow, we celebrate the Haitian flag's 211th anniversary. We have a lot to be proud of. And a lot to think about. Many songs fit the occasion. Would we feature a nostalgic ode like Jacques Sauveur Jean's Ayiti Cheri and MikaBen's Ayiti Se? Or poignant reality checks like BelO's Detripay? Kumbaya...

Triye [ Trier = Sort out ]

"The good ones are already taken, now a days you have to sift through to find a good one" Recently while listening to a single from one of the most popular Haitian musical bands-- Kreyol la. The single off their upcoming album which is cautiously titled "Triye" (which means to sort out, pluck out, or be selective and choosy). The song stipulates that all the good ones are already taken and if a person...

Five Diaspora Winter Anthems

A few weeks ago, all 50 states reached freezing temperatures. The Polar vortex may be gone, but most of us still can't feel our toes. Since humans can't hibernate, staying in and hunkering down is only a temporary fix. Plus, we have to brave the cold to pay those bills. Good thing, we have music to warm our souls. Quite a few Haitian artists have migrated to the States, Canada, and Europe. They've all experienced the winter blues and expressed their lingering homesickness in song. Here are a few of our favorites. They're a potent cocktail of frustration and nostalgia. We'd cry,...
