Haitian balladeer and musician Beken’s newest album, “Troubadour” hit iTunes two weeks ago in honor of Haitian Heritage Month. The new album features ten Twoubadou songs that highlight Beken’s distinctive and impassioned voice.
Beken started to get some international attention after his music was profiled in the New York Times. When Thirty Tigers producers Chris Donohue and David Macias heard the short clips of his singing in a slide show Romero had produced for the New York Times website, they were inspired to work on a new record with Beken.
Beken’s US/international debut album entitled “Troubadour” was released on May 4, 2015 on Thirty Tigers Music.
