So excited to announce the release of our debut album "Wa Di Yo" on April 1 from the Cumbancha record label! Check out this teaser video filmed on the campus of the Artists Institute while we recorded the album.
We are so proud to share our 2016 Kanaval - "Se Ayiti Wi!" - The song was written and performed by Lakou Mizik with the help of the students of Artists Institute on Chorus. It was recorded by Ishmael Mevs and François Machiagodenna at Artists Institute and Produced by Lakou Mizik, Artists Institute, PowerSurge and OneWay Productions. Mixed by PowerSurge.
We are so thrilled to announce that Lakou Mizik has been chosen as one of only 12 acts form around the world to participate in the prestigious annual international showcase GlobalFest on January 17th, 2016 in New York City! What a huge honor! Can't wait for our first performance in New York and to share the stage with all the other great musicians from around the world! http://globalfest.org/
We were overwhelmed by the wonderful radio documentary the Australian Broadcast Corporation (ABC) aired this week about Lakou Mizik and Haitian culture! Thank you so much Brietta Hague - our wonderful friend who made it happen.
Hope you all enjoy this little video recorded in the studio while the band rehearses "Anba Siklòn" a song off of the new album that bemoans all the corruption - that work against the progress of the Haitian people.
It has been a long timing coming - but we are so excited to announce that the new album is finally mixed and ready to get mastered! We are so grateful for all the passion and talent of our production team Chris Velan and Iestyn Polson who helped us realize this dream. We can't wait to share it with you!
