I have two things to say about this project. 1, Cuban needed something out there, no matter what and regardless of the format and presentation. As someone who earned my musical ears listening to Skah Shah, my expectation is always very high when the name Shah Shah is mentioned. So I am always careful to differentiate between a genuine Skah Shah product and one by a Skah Shah Product. And this is simply what this is: a product (the CD) by a Skah Shah Product (Cubano). Many have said that Cubano IS Skah Shah, I forcefully disagree with that characterization. One may recognize Skah Shah by the voice of Cubano but Skah Shah is (was) more than the voice of Cubano. Cubano released one of the best Konpa Albums of all times, "L'Essence". L'Essence was a great product but it was not a Skah Shah product. It was a product by a Skah Shah Product.

I was born in Port-De-Paix, Haiti on October 20, 1950. I started singing and playing the Bass Guitar in the catholic choir of "Les Freres De L'Intruction Chrétien" in my home town. 

When I asked Pipo to interview the Godfather of Compas, Jean Elie Telfort (Cubano), I could feel the excitement in him, he sent me the first question within 5 minutes. Cubano is one of Pipo's idol in the HMI. Cubano accept the invitation to answer Pipo's questions with the same enthusiasm...it was a "byen jwenn, byen knottier":
