The “Haitian Creole” Song That Changed My Life…


If this song doesn’t make you want to learn Haitian Creole and move to the Haiti then you simply are not human!

  This song is named “Yele” by Wycleff Jean who is quite possibly the most famous and influenctial Haitian who has ever lived

      This song was written way before the earthquake, as Wycleff was trying to exress to the world the situation that has always existed in Haiti. You may have seen the pictures of the poverty, or after earthquake dissaster, but I bet you haven’t seen the beautuful side of the country and culture that gives Haiti it beautiful potential!

Do me a favor, If you have never heard of Haitian KOMPA music or seen the beautiful dance, SUBSCRIBE to this blog and be on the look out for more post as I share with the world more about this amazing culture!

Kontinye aprann kreyol!!!!
