Album Review
Reviewed 2005-02-02 
The Haitian (now based in NY) diva delivers a strong release that celebrates her Rasin Kreyol (Creole roots). Ranging from pop to jazz, to more traditional sound, all tracks feature her rich, warm, emotional voice. Backed by a strong band w/some especially good percussion. Most songs w/a political message. In French & Creole

*1. Starts lazy, gets into a nice lively sound.
2. Upbeat Calypso/jazz groove.
*3. Mostly midtempo w/nice work from chorus/band. Sweet.
4. Child talking, down/midtempo, lightly swaying.
*5. Bright, jazz-infused love song w/a Caribbean feel.
6. Sexy mid/uptempo blend of voices/horn/perc.
7. Reggae-infused AIDS-awareness song.
8. Haunting blend of voices. Slow, almost creepy. Too short.
*9. Upbeat & driving w/some great percussion.
*10. Fast, funky blend of horns/perc/vocals.
11.Spoken, only :14 long, can go right into 12.
*12. Perc, wordless vocals. Midtempo, full of yearning.
