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.

Albums We're Waiting For

Though there's a couple of albums from last year we still can't get enough of, that doesn't mean we can't look forward to a great lineup in 2016. Here are some of the albums that we can't wait for this year. 1. Carimi Their last album, Invasion, has yet to come out the 5-disc changer in most people's cars. The live album, "Kite M Cho" made us fall in love with the tracks even more. With Michael's return to the band after a month-long vacation/mini retirement, we're sure...

Discover Talie's Debut EP 16 Novembre

Since Nathalie Cerin released her first two studio singles, Ti Nèg Chèlbè and Bèl Tifi, we've been waiting for a complete project from her. It's finally here, and it's a live EP she recorded on her birthday. On 16 Novembre, we find a more seasoned artist, with a firmer grasp on the world. Gone is the bubbly sweetness of her earlier material. The patina of life - wilted relationships, career shifts, last-minute apartment hunts - has molded her...

Top 16 of 2016

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! 16....

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...

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...

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...

Introduce us to VOGGE. How did the collaboration come about? OCHO: The Collaboration came around in 2014. We knew each other from various sporting events around town, but it wasn't until 2014 that we put our talents together and started...

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,...
