“Rasin nou, kilti nou, pou yon menm vizyon”

[Verse 1]
Jou a rive pou nou montre le mond antye sa nou peze
Nou son w nasyon ki plen fierte gad eritaj zansèt yo te kite
Soufle lanbi, soufle banbou, bwase diri, bon kalalou
Montre yo nou ka viv vre, di nou ka rive touche le mond antye

[Verse 2]
Nou gen w vizyon, nou gen kouraj
Nou gen w mision, pote mesaj
Fò n fè inyon, ann rete saj pou nou sa pwojte yon pi bèl imaj

Pou yo jwenn freedom, wi nou ka viv vre

The sound of freedom, our roots, our culture, our common future
Let’s go

Oh oh oh – nou gon w fyète n ap defann
Oh oh oh – pa gen chita tan

    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...

    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.

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...
