Se li ki mete f nan flannè
Li tèlman madre l met las trèf nan pokè
Nan game nan se li k pi bon jwè
Li pa pafè men l pa janm fè erè
Li di li gen on bon fanm gras a Die
Sa fè nevan depi yo marye
On ti gason dizan yap leve
Kè li kontan lavi li konble
Yo toujou li pitit li pa sanble dèfwa sa fè l fristre
Li toujou defann madanm li tèt kale
S on nonm konsa li ye
Yon jou matin li deside mete dout sou kote
Li pran pitit li l al nan on sant de sante
Sa w tande a
Li pran on kout pitit
Madanm parèt konsa l pantan
Li pa konn ki pye pou li mete devan
Ti pa chat se kout manchèt nan do
Men lè gen timoun se kout kouto nan do
Mesye a gentan dezole ti gason an menm fin debousole
Atitid li lekòl pachiman
Ou paka blame l s on kout papa li pran
S on sitiyasyon tout moun soufri pandan tout moun sibi
Sosyete peye l a timoun mal tonbe sa se la verite
Premye moun sou tè sa li fè konfyans manman se referans
Sa k ta di jodya l ta gen degoutans mwen tande
Klass nan kay la
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...
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." Starting today and ending on Valentine's Day, we'll follow a relationship from the initial encounter to the altar. 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...
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....
"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...

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,...
