Mon îlot

L'encadrement cassé
L'image quitte le décor
Dedans, tout est brisé
C'est la ruée vers l'or
Le nouveau, c'est l'ancien
Le navire qui revient
Je le vois arriver
Affamé, assoiffé.

Il s'accoste au rivage
Jetant l'ancre du pillage
Camouflant les carcans
Et les canons d'antan.

Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Je comprends ta douleur
Je viens t’offrir ces mots
Pour guérir tous tes maux
Te rappeler ta victoire
Petite île, grande histoire.

Pa da da pa pa
Pa da da pa pa…

Ta blessure est ouverte
Ton drapeau en lambeaux
Triste découverte
Tes entrailles dans l'tombeau
Le passé qui revient
Au coeur du quotidien
Dans cette lutte tribale
érosion nationale.

Les pirates de chez nous
Prédateurs d'outre-mer
Les métèques, les voyous
Ils dessinent ton enfer.

Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Tu vis là dans mon coeur
Je viens t’offrir mes mots
Pour guérir tous tes maux
Te rappeler ta victoire
Petite île, grande histoire.

Pa da da pa pa…
Pa da da pa pa…

Ici, le vent marin
Seul siffle encore ton beau nom
Et les vagues du matin
Ressassant encore ton renom
C’est vrai, tu rêves encore
D’un lendemain meilleur
Oui, où tout s’améliore
Pour un p’tit brin d’bonheur.

Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Je comprends ta douleur
Je viens t’offrir mes mots
Pour guérir tous tes maux
Te rappeler ta victoire
Petite île, grande histoire.

Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Toi mon île, toi qui pleures
Petite fleur qui se meurt

Tu grelottes
Ils radotent
Tu t'éteins
Ils font le plein.
Tu gémis
Tu pâlis
Sans un bruit
Ils fixent les prix.
T’es vendu
T’es battu
Confondu
Dans la cohue
Haïti Chérie.

Pa da da pa pa…
Pa da da pa pa…

    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,...

    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...
