VIDEO: Michael Brun & Lakou Mizik – “Gaya” Kanaval 2017 Feat. J.Perry

When Haitian DJ Michael Brun met with the all-star Racine (roots) music collective Lakou Mizik, the questions was simple: how to make these two musical styles work together and push Haitian culture forward in a unique, but authentic and international way. Their 2017 Kanaval offering – “GAYA” (pronounced “guy-ah”) or “Healing” is the rowdy swaggering answer – a banging dancefloor roots rocker that trades between the frenetic traditional rhythms of Haitian Rara music and the DJ’s signature bass laden production.

The lyrics, written by Lakou Mizik and Haitian pop star J.Perry, call on Haitians from every corner of the world to come together in a unified chorus of pride and positivity to heal and stay strong in the face of all the difficulties the country endures.
