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":
It was a big surprised to me, when I asked Emeline to select another artist to interview, for our “Artist Interviewing Artist “ segment…and she picked Richie. Not that Richie was a wrong choice, but
How many would expect Emeline to pick someone out of the Compas world; but the choice really boost up my curiosity, wanting to see the type of questions that would be coming from the Diva and the type of answers that Richie would reply. Richie started the interview with a personal note to the Diva.
Tico’s adaptability and inventiveness saw him become one of the most prolific musician in the history of Haitian music. As a legendary drummer for Gypsies, Freres Dejeans and now Magnum Band, Tico Pasquet answers a few questions from another drummer, Jensen Desrosiers of Phantoms.
