€ 5,00


2004 album waarop Wyclef terugkeert naar z`n Haitiaanse roots met mix van r&b, soca, hip-hop, reggae + natuurlijk compas. Met gast bijdragen van o.a. Foxy Brown, Buju Banton, T-Vice, Sweet Mickey e.a. Most of the songs are also sung in Creole, a notable exception being the hypnotic "President," with its macabre nursery-rhyme refrain "if i was president, i`d get elected on friday, assassinated on saturday, buried on sunday, back to work on monday," a neat confluence of Haitian magic and merican political realism. The tranquil "Douce," with its sultry backing vocals, is a slow-burner, while the celebratory "Fistibal-festival" is perhaps the most typically caribbean of the tracks on offer here. But Jean`s political message and his dance-floor aspirations find their smoothest blend on upbeat dance tracks "Fanm Kreyol" and "Haitian Mafia" (which features Foxy Brown), offering irresistible beats and rapid-fire creole exhortations that bypass the synapses and go straight for the hips.
