Dèfwa m rete m imajine sa la vi ye
Wap kwè’m siw vle se tout venn kòm ki pran tranble
Defwa m konn ap fete gen’w lòt ki dlo nan je
Lesprim konn bien poze genw lòt ki toumante
Wap dim kouman mpral fè santi’m ere
Gad kijan m bien kanpe gen’w frè k andikape
Sak jwenn pou jete yon lòt pa ka manje
Wap dim kouman mpral fè ere
Dèfwa m rete map kalkile sa nap asiste
Wap kwè’m si’w vle se dlo nan je’m kap fin seche
Map fè chwa pou’m dòmi gen’w lòt ki nan lari
Gen sak gen tròp abi pandan on lòt tou touni
Wap di kouman mpral fè santi’m ere
Chak fwa m ta vle rejwi m sonje sa kap soufri
Chak moman m vle souri m sonje sa kap jemi
Wap di kouman mpral fè ere
Pap janm bliye Rooldine Lindor kite peyi’l k’al etidie
Dominiken viole’l l y’asine’l kòman’w ta vle pou’m ta ere
Pakèt timoun nan lari ak yon twal sal ap suye machin
Yo san fanmi yo sans abri kòman’w ta vle pou’m ta rejwi
Lè gro trip ap vale ti trip la mizè ka rann moun chimè
Yon jenès kap viv nan lafè di pito’l mouri l’ al nan paradi
Lavni on peyi panse konsa, son’w mitrayèt otomatik
Ki branche sou on sosiete si n’ pa ekilibre l’ ka deklanche
Notre Père qui est aux cieux, que ton nom soit sanctifié
Que ton reigne vienne tous les jours pou sosiete sa pa fin echwe
Jenou’n atè nap priye Bondye nap made’w pitie
Konnen nou peche se vre tanpri papa padone’n
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...

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...
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,...

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...
