Lyrics by: Black-g Swag

Ayiti se bèl lanmè se bèl montay ak bèl rivyè
Se bèl plaj ak pye kokoye bèl peyizaj ak bèl koulè
Ayiti se sant kafe kap monte nan nen m' le maten
Se sant lawouze ki fèk poze pou flè dizè ka boujonnen
Ayiti se Basen Ble Kaskad Pichon avèk Sodo
Se Akaden La Sitadèl se Labadi ak Marigo
Ayiti se Lavale se Pòsali ak Zabriko
Se Mòn Lasèl Pik Makaya se Mamlad ak Mòn Pilbowo

Ayiti se yon dous makòs se yon ponyen pistach griye
S'on ji kole ki pou banm fòs s'on boutèy kola ki byen glase
Ayiti s'on bon griyo s'on bon fritay on bon taso
S'on bon legim avèk sirik s'on bon diri avek lalo
Ayiti s'on bon bouyon s'on soup joumou a tout piman
S'on bon kasav avèk manba
Ke ou tranpe nan akasan
Ayiti s'on bon donmbwèy kap marinen nan yon bon sòs pwa
S'on bwakochon on bon kleren Ayiti s'on bon kafe diswa

[Chorus]
Ayiti cheri pou jan mwen renmen w
Mwen vin depoze ti kè mwen nan men w
Ayiti cheri pou jan m'adore w
Pa gen anyen kap janm fè mwen kite w
Ayiti cheri pou jan mwen renmen w
Mwen vin depoze ti kè mwen nan men w
Ayiti cheri pou jan m'adore w
Pa gen anyen kap janm fè mwen kite w

Ayiti s'on bèl mizik se yon bann a pye s'on twoubadou
S'on son kata seremoni, se yon son kwachi yon son tanbou
Ayiti se tè Ogou, se tè zansèt kite pou nou
Se la lesklavaj t'aboli se yon tè libète ak vodou
Ayiti se festival se tisourit se fèt chanpèt
S'animasyon nan Kanaval se yon ti zile k' pa janm frèt
Ayiti s'on domino se yon bezig se yon twasèt
S'on reveyon kote ki gen bouyon se la k' gen kenbe tèt

Ayiti se yon konbit peyizan kap sèkle latè
Se ti machann yo kap desann
Pou y'al goumen ak lavi chè
Ayiti se timoun yo k'ap reve de yon bèl avni
Se dlo rigòl la kap desann pa konn kote l pra-l ateri
Ayiti se anba tant lan depi apre 12 janvye
Se labou k' lev' on move sant chak lè on ti lapli fin tonbe
Ayiti se sou beton'an pou konn “la vrai” reyalite
Se youn ki tris men grasadye se pa li sèlman n' ka chante

[Chorus]

Ayiti se yon manman ki konn sa yo rele doulè
On fanm ki djanm on fanm vanyan menm si l' konnen li pa pafè
Ayiti se yon bèl fanm ki menmsi l pase anpil mizè
Li toujou f'on jan l ranje kò l pou tout pitit li toujou fyè
Ayiti se tout bagay sa a yo ki fè ke nou renmen w
E menm si wout la long konnen n'ap toujou la pou n kenbe men w
Ayiti cheri w mèt kwè m
Pa gen anyen k'ap fè m'kite-w
Map toujou la pou ou cheri
Kite mizik sa a dòlote-w

  • Gogomaji Takes Us Into His World

    Gogomaji is a new voice in Hip-Hop Kreyòl. With his fusion of racine and rap, Laurenzgo Gauvin has brought a unique sound in the game. We got a chance to chat with Gogomaji about his latest singles, writing and upcoming plans. 1. Gogo Maji. Explain to us the meaning behind Gogo Maji and how did the name come about?

    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...

    From Hi To I Do

    We started Wikimizik because we're passionate about Haitian music and believe our language makes for beautiful storytelling. That's why we're telling a love story through song with "From Hi To I Do." Starting today and ending on Valentine's Day, we'll follow a relationship from the initial encounter to the altar. Everyday we'll share a song or more taking us through the stages of the relationship. There'll be songs that make you smile, and others that may leave you feeling...

    Albums We're Waiting For

    Though there's a couple of albums from last year we still can't get enough of, that doesn't mean we can't look forward to a great lineup in 2016. Here are some of the albums that we can't wait for this year. 1. Carimi Their last album, Invasion, has yet to come out the 5-disc changer in most people's cars. The live album, "Kite M Cho" made us fall in love with the tracks even more. With Michael's return to the band after a month-long vacation/mini retirement, we're sure...

    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...

    HMI Artists Share Their Favorite Holiday Songs

    Nothing gets us in the spirit like holiday music. That got us wondering what jams and traditions make our artists merry. So we asked. ← Previous Next→ ...

    For Mom

    That voice in your head isn't your conscience. It's your mother, whispering "Pitit mwen, sa a w'ap fè la a?" Reminding you that you're better than this. Telling you to dust yourself off and finish what you started. Urging you to be as great as she knows you were destined to be. Because that's what mothers do. She always knows best and always wants the best for you. Whether your mother is a short drive away, a phone call away, or in heaven watching down, these songs remind us that the our greatest...
