Pòch mwen koule m pa gen way m plat atè
Monte desann m chaje bagay pou m fè
Grangou a pran m bò Croix - des - Bouquets
Lè sa m kwaze yon denye ti pitit
Bèl ti bebe bèl anfòm san kritik
Cheri ann al bwè pou n tounen ti komik
Mwen pa gen kòb pou m achte on brik
Ay fout pratik ba l on byè, ba l on byè
Pou bèl anfòm ba l on byè , ba l on byè
Machann ba l on byè , ba l on byè
Menm si pòch mwen vire lanvè , ba l on byè
Wooy pratik ba l on byè
Jan l kanpe a ba l on byè
Pou bèl anfòm ba l on byè
Pa pale I mal si li sou plezi
Pa fè moral fèmen je w Jezi
Li renmen tafya l kite li
E mape bal bwè pou lòt madi
Se nou ki de ki nan mal nan mal nèt
E li miyò o mwen li pap fè dèt
Apre jodi m pap vin bò isi
Croix-Des-Bouquets m ale
Sete yon jedi m tap roule vit m prese
Lè m wè lap vini m di shit li presye
So san pèdi tan m pake vit bese
M rele I li pa reponn li fè m wont m blese
Li di m si w pa kanpe sou anyen ou sonw malere pas
Kòz m se sèl fanm ki pa konn fè malere gras
M gentan ap swe men m pa ka fè lèd
Nan pòch mwen pa gen anpil
Gen sèlman san lamere pyas
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...

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...

The song stipulates that all the good ones are already taken and if a person...
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,...
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...
