Lyrics by: Mikaben, Paul Beaubrun

Haiti, mon pays, ma patrie
Mwen vin pale nan non ou cheri
Tout sa m di, yo soti nan zantray ou
Tout lwa yo, espri yo, ginen yo,
Tout voyem fon ti pale pou yo
Chovi yo, rasanble vin tande istwa yo
Se nou k te konmanse revolution
Zansèt nou yo yo pat janm pran nan presyon
Se nou k te konmanse liberasyon
Kilti nou se nou
Se li k fè nou Gran ye ye ye...

Nou vin montre le monn antye
Kisa nou vo
Men nan la men nou vin mache
Nou pran w lòt nivo
Yon sèl nasyon yon sèl fanmi
Yon sèl drapo
Men yap chant'on menm meloi
Ayibobo
Tout moun edem chante
Ayibobo
Le monn antye fòn repete
Ayibobo
Ayisyen mwen pa tande
Ayibobo
Edem chante edem rele
Ayibobo

[Zing]
Mwen pap pale anglè
Mwen pap menm pale fransè
Map pale ak diyitem
Kreyòl pale, kreyòl konprann
Tout lòt nasyon vle imite n’
Nou son pèp ki gen fyète
Tablo nou se li k’ pi fò
Resous nou se yon trezò

Nou se lò, se lò, se lò
Li lè pou n’ ranmase tèt nou
Wi nou se lò, se lò, se lò
Tanbou a se li k’ pou nou

Lwa pran m’
Pandan m’ Chita anba mapou lakay oh
Lwa pran m’
Benyen basen zim zantray oh
Ayibobo!
Nou vin montre le monn antye
Kisa nou vo
Men nan la men nou vin mache
Nou pran w lòt nivo
Yon sèl nasyon yon sèl fanmi
Yon sèl drapo
Men yap chant'on menm meloi
Ayibobo
Tout moun edem chante
Ayibobo
Le monn antye fòn repete
Ayibobo
Ayisyen mwen pa tande
Ayibobo
Edem chante edem rele
Ayibobo

Mwen antre wo nan Lakou wa
Pran lari a
Mwen antre wo nan Lakou wa
Pran lari a
Mwen antre wo nan Lakou wa
Pran lari a
Mwen antre wo nan Lakou wa
Pran lari a

Nou vin montre le monn antye
Kisa nou vo
Men nan la men nou vin mache
Nou pran w lòt nivo
Yon sèl nasyon yon sèl fanmi
Yon sèl drapo
Men yap chant'on menm meloi
Ayibobo
Tout moun edem chante
Ayibobo
Le monn antye fòn repete
Ayibobo
Ayisyen mwen pa tande
Ayibobo
Edem chante edem rele

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...

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,...

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. But after chatting with the Montreal-based singer, we realized though Roody tells it like it is, he can be a little too hard on himself. 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...
