    Harmonik is a great band. I only wish they'd use less english lol. The lead singer used to be in K-Dans (haitian band). Nickenson Prudhomme is a big producer too. He's produced a bunch of Zouk and Konpa hits.


    This is their newest video with Alison Hinds.



    Some new stuff from their latest album

    Rat ki rat se nan pèlen ou rete
    Tèt zozo men pa ou, zozo kale men pa ou
    M ap konyen fanm nan jis solèy leve
    Bwa m kale tou wouj
    Kon piman , kon piman, Langyèt madivinèz
    Ou pa bezwen chandèl pou ou klere l

    not really. Appealing to haitian-americans isn't the same as marketing to americans or jamaicans...its still their ethnic music.

    People outside of the west indies don't know that you're separate from the dominican republic lol...no offence but most of the world doesn't even realise there are other creole speaking countries aside from Haiti

    Dominicans always had a better chance at passing Haitians because their native language is Spanish and that's spoken in many of the places surrounding them.
