Haitian Pride by Paul Beaubrun
Haitian-American musician Paul Beaubrun grew up immersed in music. His family formed the GRAMMY-nominated band Boukman Eksperyans while living in Port-Au-Prince, and they were also tied to the political upheaval in Haiti. In 1991, after the military coup d’etat, they fled to New York.
Beaubrun seeks to conquer the world with gentleness in his music, and the best way to describe it is with the Haitian Creole word for “Blessings” – the perfect title for his 2018 album ‘Ayibobo’.
