Mwen montre w jan m renmen w
Mwen ba w tout sa w bezwen
Fè kado fe kenken
Ou pa manke anyen
Ou soti ak zanmi e mwen pa kapab di anyen
Si m tap fè menm bagay la
Se dife ki tap pran nan kay la
Ou ta met yon let pou w di papi kote w pral la
M ap fè on rive deyò a ou pa di m kilè m ap antre la
M paka chita kite w kontwole m kòm gason kay la
Ou menm kanpe nan figi m
Ou di ou kab kraze kay sa
Papi mwen se fanm pa w la
Fanm total kapital la
Sak an tèt kolòn pa w la
Fanm ou nome rèn pa w la
M adore w ak tout kè m
Men m pap kite w trennen m nan tè
M ap toujou ret avè w
Men fò w ka trete m ak respè
Mwen se rèv nan zantray ou
Ki se yon kleopatra
Ou mèt rele m queen chiba
Kap pote yon bebe nèf mwa
E kouraj Kathrine Flon
Oh wi cheri m son fanm vanyan
M te di w si w nenmen yon fanm la
Mwen menm kap kraze kay sa

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,...
"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...
