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




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...

4Mula's Chapter 1

Jude and Carl Edouard (Carlitow) Deslouches have been on our radar since they dropped Se Ou Mwen Vle and the subsequent EP. Once in a while, the brothers would tease us with a new track. Late last year, they introduced 4Mula, a new band with fellow Montrealites and former Vibrasyon members, Romuald Paul and Benjamin Guirand. Their debut, "Chapter 1", is a groovy ride anchored by the Deslouches' warm vocals. It's the kind of album that will jump start any party and keep it rocking all night long. All you need is an aux cord. We...

    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,...
