Petrocité

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...

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...

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,...
