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...

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,...
2016 was an epic year for the HMI. We mourned over a few break ups and celebrated new beginnings. Throughout these ups and downs great music came flowing through our speakers faster than we could consume. Our playlist this year was extremely rich and diverse with hits from the former President to new comers in the game. You can imagine assembling a list of best songs of the year would be difficult. We decided to take the easy route and avoid subjectivity by providing you with the 16 most popular songs from 2016 on Wikimizik. Check back every hour. Enjoy and on to 2017!

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.
