Ye, ye, ye, ye
Kòb lespwa ti moun yo
Ye, ye, ye, ye, ye
Kot avni Granmoun yo?
Ye, ye, ye, ye
Se sou nou’l pral tonbe
Ye, ye, ye, ye
E se nou’k pral peye.

Kote lajan’n pran sou do ti moun yo?
Sa’n regle pou moun goudougoudou yo?
Ki devlopman nou fè ak milya yo?
Bati lotèl sou pil fatra yo.

Nèg yo manje rezon-m mwe
G-on-w zo pwason-k pral kwoke nan gòj yo

Kote tout lò gen anba sousòl yo?
Kote travay pou moun karakòl yo?
Pou di se blan’k tounen vinn plen bòl yo?
"Blan mannan"
Sou do lepèp, sou ti moun lekòl yo.

Rakèt, rakèt, rakèt, raketè

Se pa Jodi nèg yo ap gade wo.

G-on-w kòb shanggo-k chwe nan men yo ye.

Pèp la nan dòmi,
Li gen pou-l reveye.

N’ap plimen poul la zafè si’l rele
Pèp reziye, kite mele
Yo di ankèt la pap janm abouti
Pito nou lèd nou la se sa yo di

M’gen oto blende, mwen pwoteje, mwen sekirize
Kale dada mwen jan mwen vle
Leta ap peye.

Ki te mele’m s’on dèt nou dwe, sa pa gade’m
Blan’an di’m danse PETRO’m jan’m vle
Pèp la ap peye.

“-M-nève, m-santi-m nève, m-santi-m nève.
-Sa-k fò-w nève?
-Nèg sa yo, se mechan yo ye.”

Twòp lòbèy nan peyi mwe
Twòp fatra nan peyi mwe
Twòp vòlè nan peyi mwe
Fò BonDye di yon mo.
Twòp pwoblèm nan peyi mwe
Twòp salte nan peyi mwe
Sitirè nan peyi mwe
Fò pèp la di yon mo.

Kòb volatilize
Nan men yo fò’n chache yo
Lajan’k evapore
Nan men yo fò’n chache yo
Lamama yo lave
Nan men yo fò’n chache yo
Kòb awousa rale
Nan men yo fò’n chache yo.

Underground Spotlight: VOGGE

You may not know them yet, but VOGGE is in vogue. Ocho and Ostinato spoke to us about the duo's distinct sound and global aspirations. Get to know them and get ready to shoki on the dance floor. 1. Introduce us to VOGGE. How did the collaboration come about? OCHO: The Collaboration came around in 2014.

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...

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...

From Hi To I Do

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."

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...
