Roger M. Eugene
Legendary vocalist Roger M. Eugene (Shoubou) has been the world's most popular Haitian singer for the past 30 years. He is known for his ability to easily switch gears to generate excitement and electricity. Shoubou loves interacting with audiences. He often imitates dancers in the audience and has been known to give on stage Creole lessons as he invites people to sing along. Shoubou joined Tabou in 1968 when he moved to the village of Petion-Ville from Haiti's province of Port-de-Paix. Like most great singers, Shoubou's singing career started in the church. Then later, he played in a local band in Port-De-Paix with his good friend and well-known singer Cubano, currently with Les Skah-Shah. Shoubou said his musical idols are Gerard Dupervil, Ray Charles and Guy Derosier.
