I am a native of Petion-ville, I am a trumpeter, trombone’ player, song writer, and arranger. I attended Lycee Petion-Ville and was part of the school band with Isnard Douby, Herman Nau, and his older bother Fred.
I was born in Port-de-Paix in 1947, I'm known as one of the great singers in the Haitian history. After completing my studies in my native city, I migrated to Petion-Ville. While there, I joined the Ibo Negro Band and subsequently was recruited to join another band, that will become the international identity of Compas music around the word...we are often called, the ambassador of Haitian music.
I was born in Port-au-Prince on March 21, 1919. I am known affectionately as Mamita, came to fame in Haiti during the 1940s, most notably during Port-au-Prince’s bicentennial festivities in 1949. As a child, I sang at the Port-au-Prince Cathedral and, in 1942, began my professional career with folkloric concerts at the Rex Theatre, where I was often accompanied by fellow singer-dancer Emérantes Despradines.
Kick off event for the long Labor Day Weekend. Dine, Wine and listen to some great music, the acoustic sound of Haiti, with some of our top artists peforming unplugged, raw with just a mic an one instrument.
No need to cook that evening, come to Meli Melo and enjoy some great authentic Haitian cuisine with excellent customer service. Seat back and relax and the staff will take care of the rest.
The theme is "The Spirit of Carnival" because we will end the night by putting our dancing shoes on and enjoy the great sound of local band Baz Twoubadou.
