Born out of the tragedy of the 2010 earthquake, the Lakou Mizik collective fly the flag proudly for Haitian culture on an album that combines African, New Orleans and European influences with a Caribbean dialect and wrapped in upbeat danceability. Guests include Leyla McCalla, returning the compliment after Lakou Mizik appeared on her shortlisted album Capitalist Blues. A Top of the World in #153.
