Happy New Year & Happy Independence Day, Haiti!



This is a song of liberation,
on the day we chose to live up to our name,
break free from the shackles of shame,
and explore the possibilities of our imagination
to our birthright, which we now claim.

This is a song of liberation.
For the ancestors who lit the spark at Bois Caiman,
we will sing from Jacmel to Cap-Haïtien with our hearts aflame,
for the freedom we proudly proclaim.
This is a song of liberation


Happy Independence Day, Haiti!

A Pye Nou Ye - Bwa Nan Nen!
