Haitian Music Legend Herby Widmaier To Be Laid to Rest Today in Port-au-Prince

Haitian music legend Herby Widmaier
Haitian music legend Herby Widmaier, a singer-composer who started his musical career in the late 1950s died on April 27 at his house in Port-au-Prince. Considered a music legend by many for his contributions not only to Haitian music, but to Haitian broadcasting, Widmaier was born in Port-au-Prince in the 1930s. At thirteen, he had built his first radio. He was a popular star at El Rancho, and performed there regularly at the beginning of his career.

He was part of Issa El Saieh’s band, and sung lead on several records. Among his recordings was the jazz-inflected “Woman in Love”.

Mushi and Joel, two of Widmaier’s sons went on to follow his musical footsteps and formed a band called Zekle in the early 1980s.

Widmaier’s father Ricardo Widmaier owned a radio station, and with this exposure, he learned about technical aspects of radio. He later created his own radio station Radio Metropole, which is still operated by Richard, one of his sons.

Haitian music legend Herby Widmaier dies at 84. To be laid to rest today!

The deceased’s funeral will be held at a church in Petionville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince. He was 84.

Condolences and sympathies to his family and other loved ones.

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

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…”

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!

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: T-Micky, featuring Medhy Coustos.
Kreyolicious Song: Kite’l Ale
