Ayiti ala'm kontan wè'w.
Pòtoprens, pou jan m'anvi wè'w.
Ayiti ala'm kontan wè'w.
Haïtiens, mes frères, pou jan m'te anvi wè'n.

Depi ayewopò, mwen santi'm transfòme
Radyo, televizyon, jounalis, tout te vinn rankontre m
Yo soti tout kote pou yo vinn akeyi nou
Mwen te telman sezi, mwen pat menm ka pale

An n chante!

[Chorus]
Ala kontan m'kontan aswè a m'nan peyi'm, (Mezanmi!)
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek zanmi'm
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek fanmi'm yo
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'nan peyi'm.

Sikilasyon bloke sou tout wout Montana
Onzè diswa sonnen, n'ateri Chez Harry's
Nou bwè bon Barbancourt, nou manje bon griyo
O! Mèkredi premye mas, s'on jou m'pap sa bliye
A'nn chante!

Ala kontan m'kontan aswè a m'nan peyi'm, (Mezanmi!)
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek zanmi'm (Wi, se vre)
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek fanmi'm yo
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'nan peyi'm.

[Hook]
Ayiti cheri, se ou k' ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fòm retounen nan pye'w.

Ayiti cheri, “Perle des Antilles”
Menm si m'al kite'w yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.
Ayiti kinan mwen, Ayiti bèl fanm mwen
Menm si m'al kite'w yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

Ayiti cheri, se ou k' ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

Ayiti cheri, (Ayiti!) se ou-k ban'm lavi (Manman mwen!)
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

“Perle des Antilles,” Ayiti cheri
Menm si m'al kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.
Ayiti Toma, mon pays cheri,
Menm si m'nan Nouyòk Siti, yon jou fò'm vinn dodomeya nan pye'w

Ayiti cheri, se ou-k ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

Lanèj mèt ap tonbe, fò'm ale travay
Nou bouke!
Li mèt "below zero," m'oblije al ponche
Nou bouke!
Menm si mwen fatige, fò'm al peye "bill" mwen
Nou bouke!

Nou bouke!
Nou bouke manje manje chinwa
Nou bouke!
Nou bouke antre nan tou "subway"
Nou bouke!
Nou bouke bat lè nan faktori

[Hook]
Ayiti cheri, se ou k ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

Discover Talie's Debut EP 16 Novembre

Since Nathalie Cerin released her first two studio singles, Ti Nèg Chèlbè and Bèl Tifi, we've been waiting for a complete project from her. It's finally here, and it's a live EP she recorded on her birthday. On 16 Novembre, we find a more seasoned artist, with a firmer grasp on the world. Gone is the bubbly sweetness of her earlier material. The patina of life - wilted relationships, career shifts, last-minute apartment hunts - has molded her...

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,...

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...

Songwriter's Corner: J-Ron

Ever since he dropped All I Want is You, Ronald "J-Ron" Jean, has been working hard mastering his unique blend of RnB infused Konpa and Zouk. And he sure has perfected it.

If J-Ron was not a singer-songwriter what could have been another path? If I wasn't a singer, I'd...

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...
