Lakou Mizik is a powerhouse collective of Haitian roots music with a mix of styles that feels mystical and familiar at the same time. In the wake of Haiti’s devastating earthquake, the band came together to show the world that their country was much more than the sum of headlines that were being shot around the globe. Today with their positive messages and roots of revival music, they have become one of Haiti’s hottest exports. Known for their dance-inducing live shows and soulful music, NPR calls Lakou Mizik “a milestone in Caribbean music” and The Financial Times describes their sound as “a joyous combination of Haitian music of all genres”.
The COUNTERPOINT series focuses on contemporary artists who push the boundaries of what “world music” can mean in the 21st Century.
