Wesli's music is a syncretic blend of electronic music, Afrobeat, soul, funk, hip-hop and more.Tradisyon, released by Cumbancha, is the first of a two-part project that retells the story of Haiti’s past and imagines its future. |
Overflowing with 19 songs, Tradisyon explores traditional chants from the voodoo religion, explosive carnival rara rhythms and lilting, folksy twoubadou songs. As of this writing, the album is #5 on the Transglobal World Music Chart.
Use this album to celebrate the music of Haiti knowing that you are in good hands. Recommended tracks:
#3 To pumping accordion and sadly dancing strings, “Kay Koulé Trouba” uses a house with a leaking roof as a metaphor for the state of the nation.The song draws on the sounds of twoubadou, the folk
music of Haiti, which first developed in response to colonial bans on traditional Afro-Haitian
music and its instruments.
# 4 Makonay - a flamboyant tune featuring vocals, percussion and a lively dance beat intertwined with a Latin rhythm.
#16 Ay Lina - reminds me of the Brazilian lambada rhythm or the Caribbean merengue.A classic twoubadou song first sung by Haitian icon Ti Paris in the 1950s, “Ay Lina” is ripe with double-entendres and tells of a man asking a girl he loves to come and dance with him.
