I hear the kids talking
Haiti se li'm renmen
Mwen pap janm ka lagel
M ap ret ladan'l se li ki gen bèl fanm

[Verse 1]
Frero poukisa nape tire tankou Castro
Fi yo dous tankou siro
Poukisa w vle tounen zo
Malere yo ap kriye
Teroris ap eksploze
Tout timoun yo ap mande
Pou tout nasyon yo gen la pè

Viv ansanm
Viv ansanm
Frè'm ak sè'm yo
Annou viv ansanm (bis)

Gen nèg ki di yo pap lage zam' yo
Pase gen nèg la ri ki vle touye yo
Nèg ap kondi bel machin ap pren kriz kadjak
Chak swa se yon lòt car jack

Pou papye vèt gen sa kape brize pitit nou yo kidnape
Pa fè yo konfians menm si you diw soti na USA
Yo se rapote yo travay for the CIA
Se yon set-up neg yo pa care
Yo pa vle nou anvanse yo vle nou anba tè

Depi mwen piti m ap viv Haiti
Yon ti peyi tout moun gen foli bandi
Moun ap tire fòk ou veye
Aprè sa yo kidnape w ou paka peye
Yape mande miliyon dola
Fanmiw sou dada yo di yo pakapab
S'il vous plait bannou yon chans
Ou pa gen 5 kob monchè dezole
I am sorry for you yo pral lagew nan mòg

Haiti se lim renmen
Mewn pap jan ka lage'l
M ap ret ladan'l
Se li ki gen bel fanm (bis)

Croix des bouquets di remèt zam yo
La Saline di remèt zam yo
Cite Solèy di remèt zam yo
Si yo pa remèt zam yo bagay yo pap chanje
Petion ville di remèt zam yo
Cap-Haitien di remèt zam yo
Haiti di remet zam yo

Gen neg ki di yo pap lage zam yo
Pase gen neg nan la ri ki vle touye yo
Neg k ap kondi bel machin ap pran kriz kadjak
Chak swa se yon lòt car jack
Se yon set-up neg yo pa care yo pa vle
Nou avanse yo vle nout anba tè

Haiti se li renmen
Mwen pap jan ka lage'l
M ap ret ladan'l
Se li ki gen bèl fanm (bis)

  • Michel Martelly, better known as "Sweet Micky", was born February 12, 1961 in Port-au-Prince, Haïti, He is a haitian performing and recording artist, composer, and musical sociopolitical activist. Martelly served as President of Haiti after winning the presidential election in 2011. Martelly is more popularly and affectionately known as "Sweet Micky", a moniker sometimes used interchangeably to refer to himself as well as his band (with original members, guitar player Alex Tropnas and bass player Welton Desire).

    Michel Martelly has been heralded as a pioneer of a unique brand of kompas music, a style of Haitian dance music sung in Haitian Creole language. Originally, compas was a fusion of Afrolatin jazz and African/Haitian folkoric rhythms, and was traditionally played by large bands composed of numerous group members and instrument sections. Martelly, a keyboardist and the self-proclaimed "bad boy" President of Compas, popularized a nouvelle generation, or "new generation" style, of smaller bands with few members that relied predominantly on synthesizers and electronic instruments to reproduce a fuller sound. Martelly's and Sweet Micky's live performances and recordings are sometimes laced with obscenities and humorous sociopolitical commentary by Martelly. Outlandish and outspoken, Martelly has been known to drink publicly while performing in wigs, costumes, diapers, and Scottish kilts, and occasionally removed his own attire while performing. While arguably the most recognized and applauded musician and public personality in Haiti, Martelly's performance style has sometimes ignited controversy throughout the Haitian diaspora.

    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...
