Ou Pa La Tonton Nwèl • Lionel Benjamin


Genre: Folklore
Year: 2015
Lyrics by: Lionel Benjamin

Tonton Nwèl kote w ye
Tonton Nwèl kote w ale
Chak ane n ap tann ou
Chaka nou espere w

[Verse 1]
Si w konnen ke w pap vini tanpri pa kite m ekri w
Tonton Nwèl mwen nan yon peyi kote timoun ap soufri
Anpil papye gaspiye, anpil tikè dechire
Tonton Nwèl kote ou ye, Tonton Nwèl kote w ale

Ou mèt syèl la bèl mwen pa gen zye pou m wè l
Mwen pap gen yon bèl nwèl siw pa la Tonton nwèl
Mwen pa gen abdenwèl menm yon ti atifisyèl
Men nwèl mwen te ka bèl si w te la Tonton Nwèl

Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl, ou pa la Tonton Nwèl
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – Tonton Nwèl kote ou ye
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – sa fè lontan ou pa pase
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – sa fè lontan m ap tande w
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – mwen pa janmen bliye w
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl

[Verse 2]
Èske m ta ka espere ke ane sa sa ap chanje
Ou pa prale lòt kote e w ap fè yon ti pase
Gen de lè m anvi souri men m pa su ke w ap vini
Depi ke manman m mouri mwen poukount mwen nan lari


Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl, ou pa la Tonton Nwèl (4x)

Tonton Nwèl w ale te gen timoun ke w te bliye
Tonton Nwèl pase se pa tout kote li ale
Tonton Nwèl w ale men gen timoun kape chante
Tonton nwèl men gen timoun ki pa jwenn limyè mezanmi

Gen timoun kap chante gen timoun kap kriye
Tonton nwèl pase vre men gen kote l bliye
Gen timoun kap souri, gen timoun kap dòmi
Gen timoun k ap reve, Tonton nwèl pa bliye yo non

Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl, ou pa la Tonton Nwèl
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – Tonton Nwèl
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – Ayiti pi bèl
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – lè w pase vin wè l
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl –Tout timoun kontan
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – tout timoun ap ri
Ou pa la Tonton Nwèl – Tonton nwèl fon w jan

For Mom

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...

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...
