Haiti: Lakou Mizik - "Wa Di Yo" – beehype – Best Music from Around the World

Lakou Mizik

Bringing together generations of Haitian musicians, Lakou Mizik is a vehicle for hope and energy where it’s most needed.

This project started in 2010, when earthquake destroyed so many parts of Haiti. Artists of different ages decided to unite to rediscover and renew Haitian tradition – and spread it around the world.

Released at the beginning of April on Cumbancha, “Wa Di Yo” is their debut full-length album as well as a spectacular showcase of the band’s collective power and Afro-Caribbean music’s enduring charm.

While you can stream this unique collection of songs right now here, below is one of its highlights, a track called “Se Ayiti Wi!”, co-sung by a choir of students of Artists Institute in Jacmel.
