Radyo Siwèl

15. Melissa Laveaux.jpg

Born to Haitian parents but raised in Canada, Laveaux conceived Radyo Siwèl on a return visit to the island to explore the cultural roots of her homeland. Mixing updates on voodoo spirituals and Haitian folk and protest songs with her own compositions, the energetic, driving rhythms and Laveaux’s compelling voice makes for a fresh, intriguing and joyous set. A Top of the World in #137.
