Péyi lékzil

Péyi lékzil
Istwa yon pèp k-ap lonjé kwi-l
Mizè, doulè nan lanfè
Janbé fontyè ou byen janbé vag lanmè
S-on-w déblozay, s-on-w ranstay
Pitit yon gwo pèp lagé vay ké vay
Y-ap trenbalé, valkandé
Yo tribò, yo babò, adyé
Yo tout gayé, yo débousolé
Sou yon planèt tèt chajé, chen manjé chen, yo tout épapiyé.

Yon Péyi an bak kenkay
Kot lékzòd vinn machandé nanm ak zantray
Péyi délabré, koripsyon ak kontrébann
Jènn yo bouké, y-al pran konbèlann
Pa gen vwa, pa gen dwa, piti toupizi
Pa gen chwa, pa gen lwa, s-on-w foli
Ayïti, Chéri.

Wo, wo

Moun yo renmen-w an rayi
W-ap pouri, w-ap jémi, s-on-w linyon ki trayi
Yo di sé fòt mond entènasyonal
S-on-w fòs global k-ap toufé rèv lokal
Men, pa bliyé, toujou sonjé sé moun lakay
“rat kay k-ap manjé pay kay.”

Fò-Jak ou byen Sitadèl
Yo vann gout la pli ak tout lakansyèl
Yo vann Pik Makaya ak Mònn Lasèl
Yo vann lanmè, vann ti moun kou grenn sèl
Moun yo vann lendépandans nou pou dépandans
Yo vandalizé drapo-n ak tout libèté-n
Bay lòt moun dwa rékolonizé-n
Nan-w Péyi-k finn krazé tankou-w asyèt fayans.

Adyé, BonDyé
Gad-on-w éritaj y-ap piyé, dévalizé
Anyé, anmwé
Sé diléré
Patrimwann sa-a déchèpiyé.

Si Ayïti ta mouri, sé nou tout k-ap pèdi
Lékòl, lagrikilti, jimay, démagoji
La santé ak la pè, yo tout pran lasini
Inondasyon, éwozyon, n-ap péri.

Koral:

Péyi koutba
Péyi déga
Péyi fatra
Péyi rakèt, nou ékzilé
Nou dérayé, nou alyéné
Vasalizé.

Lead vocal coda:

"M-a rélé
Péyi lakay sa-a
M-a rélé
Péyi Dessalines sa-a
M-a rélé
Péyi Toussaint yan
M-di-w m-a rélé
Jan-m m-renmen Péyi-m O"

Péyi monté mònn pa do
Péyi fatra sé tablo
S-on-w maswifé
Nou zonbifyé
Nou nan koma
Ala traka.

Péyi fatra sé tablo
Péyi n-ap monté mònn pa do
Maswifé O
N-apé monté O
Yo zonbifyé-n O
"N-anvi viv O
Ba nou pasé."

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,...

Triye [ Trier = Sort out ]

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...

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...

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...

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...
