Pandan machin li pran pàn m desann pou m depane l
M tou pran nimewo l epi nou plede pale
Depi lè n fin rankontre m fou pou li san bonbòn
M gentan ba l ochan san twonpèt san twonbòn
Se pa nenpòt ki fanm elle est jolie elle est bonne
Nou vin ensenparab kou palmis ak tonton
Li prezante m manmi, li prezante m papi
Li prezante m bèl kouzin bèl tati ak tonton
Lè l fin prezante m fanmi l mwen di cheri pran ton temps
Li di m li pran tan déjà sa fè l plezi li kontan
Li di m li pap fè m sekrè, li se tablo li se krè
Kòmanse rakonte m vi l li mande m èske m prè
Li di m mwen renmen w li di m se li ou mwen vle
Mwen di l mwen renmen l tou mwen vle tout sa w vle
Li di m avant ou gen bagay pou n pale
Mwen di cheri vini ou mèt di m tout sa w vle
Li di m li s on pwostitiye
Li di m li s on pwostitiye
Li di m li poukont li tout fanmi l sou kont li
Peye lekòl se li, peye kay se li
Lopital se li, li k rele, li k reponn
Li oblije vann kò l pou l met nan asyèt ak bòl
Bourik fè pitit se pou do l poze
Men lasosyete pral mande koze
Li di m pou l fè kòb l ouvri pye l pou lanmou l ouvè kè l
Kòm li sensè avè m èske m ap ret avè l
M damou m damou nèt
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...
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,...
Tomorrow, we celebrate the Haitian flag's 211th anniversary. We have a lot to be proud of. And a lot to think about. Many songs fit the occasion. Would we feature a nostalgic ode like Jacques Sauveur Jean's Ayiti Cheri and MikaBen's Ayiti Se? Or poignant reality checks like BelO's Detripay? Kumbaya...
Originally posted on: blog.yvensr.com. "The good ones are already taken, now a days you have to sift through to find a good one" Recently while listening to a single from one of the most popular Haitian musical bands-- Kreyol la. The single off their upcoming album which is cautiously titled "Triye" (which means to sort out, pluck out, or be selective and choosy). The song stipulates that all the good ones are already taken and if a person...
There was a lot of new music to take in this year. A lot. Alan Cavé's much-awaited double album. BélO's latest classic. T-Micky's sophomore release. Debuts from 5 Etwal, X-Tassy and Koneskyon. And many more albums and singles. We could share 300 songs we loved this year, but for time and sanity's sake we're sticking to 14. So here they are, in alphabetical order -- hope you enjoy them like we did. Alan Cave - L'Or de ton Corps A gentle beat rocks you through Alan's stormy quest...

Introduce us to VOGGE. How did the collaboration come about? OCHO: The Collaboration came around in 2014.
