Album Review

Haiti's Emeline Michel proves to be not only a glorious singer, but also a very adept and savvy arranger and producer on this album. Blessed with a wonderful voice, she makes full use of it on atmospheric tracks like "Interlude (Soufle Van)" and "Mon Rêve," where she layers up the vocals, building them into a dreamlike soundscape. But she's equally at home on more formed songs, with "Bel Kongo" kicking things off in a funky Creole style. There's a certain jazziness to much of the material, which she handles smoothly. If there's one fault to the album, it's that some of the songs could have been stronger. Pieces like the lovely "Beni-Yo" and "La Karidad" are fine, but others remain surprisingly anonymous, resisting every effort to spark them into life. It's a shame, because she's a formidable talent, one who'll make a real impact in the years to come. Everything is still coming together. But when all the pieces are in place, people had better watch out.

Bravo for this new star of the Haitian Culture. Every member of the Haitian expatriate community should have a copy of this album. Thanks Emeline for keeping Haiti alive in our heart. We support your talent and looking forward to your next artistic contributions. I highly recommend Beni-yo and La Karidad

As a Haitian who has known these songs, I must say Emeline did a fantastic job. My mother, in fact, was good friends with Emeline so I am very proud of her. I love Beni-Yo and Bel Kongo the most, though I find myself singing along to the rest. Great job, Emeline and keep up the great job. I do have the album so keep it up, I am looking forward to hearing more from you.

Rasin Kreyol, Emeline Michel
