The show is set to be hosted by Haiti-based, multimedia personality Carel Pedre, and will feature a highly-anticipated performance by the band Sweet Mickey, headed by former Haiti president Michel Martelly. Other performers scheduled include Rutshelle, a songstress based in Haiti, as well as JPerry, also based on the island. Comedian Kako will be joining Carel Pedre with hosting duties. Initial flyers for the event indicated that Haitian-American Productions, featuring comedians Haitian Husbands, Plus Daddy and Success Jr, were going to be performing, but the comedians announced on their page that they would not be there this year.

Half-a-dozen deejays will take the stage and rock the life out of the hundreds expected for the event: DJ Jeanuwine, DJ Rock, DJ Stakz, DJ Ok, DJ Roger, DJ Dynamic and DJ Groove. Among the bands performing: Carimi, T-Vice, 5Lan, Harmonik and Karizma.

The organizers, headed by founder Nathan Fragelus, put on the event every summer, drawing hundreds of Haitian-Americans who are eager to have a taste of Haitian music in an exciting city. This is the fourth edition of the event. This year VIP Experience Group has even emerged with a free app that attendees can download to keep up with the schedule and performances.

Konpa In Vegas 2016 is here!

The Top 10 Problems Your Relationship May Run Into As Depicted In 10 Haitian Music Tracks

Haitian relationship problems 575x352
Haitian music depicts a lot of stages of relationships. So, this calls for yet another countdown! The Top 10 Problems Your Relationship May Run Into As Depicted In 10 Haitian Music Tracks, brought to you by your girl Kreyolicious. Let’s get started.

1. JEALOUSY

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: K-Dans
Kreyolicious Song: Jalou
Kreyolicious Notes: Oh, thy name is jealousy, and thou art ugly in the face. Jealousy is a problem you may not even see as a problem at first, until it gets to be unbearable!

2. BOUNDARIES WITH THE OPPOSITE SEX (LACK OF)

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Zanmi
Kreyolicious Song: Nickenson Prudhomme
Kreyolicious Notes: Think of Mya’s song “The Case of the Ex”, and stop to ponder on all the relationship problems that arise because folks stepped out of line! Sure, you swear you were friends with him or her before you were in your current relationship, and should continue to maintain said friendship even after you’re in a relationship.

3. WANDERING EYES/EMOTIONAL/PHYSICAL CHEATING

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Kreyol La
Kreyolicious Song: Turn Me On
Kreyolicious Notes: You thought he had his eyes on you, but right under your gaze, you see his eyes are elsewhere…You thought you were his everything, but apparently not…

4. UNEXPRESSED DISSATISFACTION/INEFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Enposib
Kreyolicious Song: Chay
Kreyolicious Notes: Words gone long unspoken becomes a burden for the heart. Don’t relationship experts point out a lack of communication as the number one reason why relationships and marriages deteriorate?

5. PERSONALITY MISREPRESENTATION

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Kreyol La
Kreyolicious Song: Before and After
Kreyolicious Notes: Boys and girls don’t fall into the temptation called misrepresentation. If you know your “I woke up like this” is more like, “I spent three hours doing my makeup…and another two hours to work that hair…”

6. LACK OF TRUST

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: T-Vice
Kreyolicious Song: Pou Ja’m Pale
Kreyolicious Notes: Distrust to the left, distrust to the right. Constant suspicion? Well, this song is for you.

7. LACK OF INTIMACY/AFFECTION

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Nu-Bel
Kreyolicious Song: Plezi Lezom
Kreyolicious Notes: Uh-oh…

8. FINANCIAL INSTABILITY/MATERIALISM

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Ojyjems
Kreyolicious Song: Lanmou an Danje
Kreyolicious Notes: She mistakes you for her father and biological provider. You feel like a savings account that’s constantly being depleted, more than you feel like a partner. Woe to thee!

9. BADMOUTHING BY DOUBTERS/INTERFERENCE BY OUTSIDERS

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Disip
Kreyolicious Song: Madan’m Mwen Te Met Pa Bon
Kreyolicious Notes: He’s no good! She’s no good! People are whispering in your ears, as if your love life concerned them. Or perhaps it’s you who invited them in your private life, and are living to regret it?Either way, your boo thang is being badmouthed by outsiders!

 

10. FADING PASSION/MIXED FEELINGS STAGE

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: T-Micky, featuring Medhy Coustos.
Kreyolicious Song: Kite’l Ale
Kreyolicious Notes: They thought it was forever, then she had second thoughts. This song captures the phase in the relationship, when the needle is hardly steady on the love mark, and it’s trembling too—as if it’s wanting to be on the mark that reads “indifference”.

So, there you have it folks: The Top 10 Problems Your Relationship May Run Into As Depicted In 10 Haitian Music Tracks, brought to you by your girl Kreyolicious. Tune in next time.
